Can’t tell you how many times we’ve done this hike! We bring all of our out-of-state visitors there ages 23-60+. We’ve visited in every season and will continue to go back! Also close to downtown Breckenridge.

The road is currently pretty impassible. I tried to get out there today with my 4WD Wrangler and ended up getting stuck in the deep snow along the sides. You could maybe get out there with a snowmobile or a 4WD that has chains but the snow really makes you fishtail, is slushy and deep in a lot of places, and feels like it's going to throw you off the road. The drive toward Yampa was gorgeous though so I can't wait until summer when the snow is gone to get back out here!

Beautiful snow covered trail just don't venture off snow is about 3-4 feet deep. hiked it today in just normal hiking boots.

Easy access and only moderately difficult. I flew from my home near Norfolk, VA to Denver, stayed in Colorado Springs overnight and then drove to trail head, hiked Mount Sherman and was back in the car by 2:00 pm. It could have been done sooner, but I slept in. Came back a few days later and hiked it with my 18 year old son. Had a great time both trips and met some good people along the trail,

Great packed trail. Made it out just after the morning snowfall. Suggest spikes or yaktrax. Many off leash dogs for head pats.

Mar 24 2018 - Easy morning snowshoeing adventure. We got some snow the night before, so snowshoes were necessary for the duration. Some falling thru fresh powder involved here. I had the serene, snow-covered lake to myself at the top, and it was a really nice experience. No real excellent panoramic views and sporadic forest coverage. [3.3/5]

Snowshoes were needed for this hike. Some spots had avalanche risk. It was a beautiful hike. Also a great place for backcountry skiing.

Great trail. It takes about 2 miles to get to the start of the actual trail because during winter u can only park in the Quandary lot! Definitely need snow shoes still and didn’t see a single person in 6 hours. Trail is well marked and I can’t wait to go back when the snow melts. Be prepared for this hike as it is definitely remote, no signal and steep

Used snowshoes on a well-packed trail to Naylor Lake. The trail to Silver Dollar is rocky and right near avalanche possibilities (that was our opinion, however, the amount of snow up on the mountains is not significant due to high winds.) It's a short hike up but with the help of alltrails.com, we were able to trek in the deep stuff off trail on the way down. We just had fun and meandered in the 3 ft. of snow off-trail. Thanks AllTrails! We didn't stray too far from the trail either but you don't want to get lost out there!

the trail was really packed down at the beginning so could get away with just yak tracks, but about a mile in got a little looser and you would probably want snowshoes. Overall a nice mellow meander through the snowy forest.

Beautiful views but you need to earn them. I hiked this trail in late February and definitely recommend snowshoes / spikes. The snow was fairly deep and we had to turn around eventually.

Great snow-shoeing trail!!

Well packed trail, we only used shoe spikes. Didn’t feel the need for snowshoes. Great view of Frisco along the trail, the lake at the end of the trail is beautiful!

Hiked in snowshoes. Not heavily traveled today. Nice out and back to view the frozen lake. Highly recommend the trail.

Great trail! Perfect length !

1/30/18 Hiked this trail with some friends from the East Coast(I’m local) and we all enjoyed the views. Half of the trail is covered in snow and the other is is paved. I’m glad I was recording because at one point the trail split and we went the way where the snow was most packed(assuming it being most traveled), which ended up being wrong. We had to find the trail by cutting across untouched snow which was up to our knees. It was all worth it. Not a lot of people on the trail and got some great photos.

Really nice little snowshoeing hike. Not too long and not too short. We had a blast. Weather was great!

This was my first time snowshoeing and this trail was great. Beautiful with fresh snow just a day ago and not too hard. Next time I'll try more elevation gain and/or a longer hike. Great views near the trailhead and a pleasant place to stop at the lake.

Not as much snow as we were expecting. Ended up not using our snowshoes at all. Great weather the whole hike, clear skies and sun. Wind was rough at the top: 40-60mph gusts, didn’t spend much time up there. Spectacular views though. Lost the trail a couple of times in the snow which made it more challenging.
Had to park about a mile below the Leavick parking site. Turned this into a 10mile round trip for us.

Hiked on 1/18. Guanella pass rd closed at silver lake trailhead. Nice uphill all the way to the lakes- bring your skis or a sled to ride the all the way back down to the parking lot!!

Great hike to bring your furry friends along! The views are wonderful, especially from the ridge trail. The gravel road was mostly clear of snow, but once you turn off on the ridge trail, the snow get a little deep. Great views!

Mountain goats

great scenery. part of the ridge was closed but there is light trail that works around.

Packed in 12/27 and set up camp in the woods below the first lake. Snow on road was 18' but compressed by skiers for part of the way. Snow in woods drifting to 4' where I built a snow shelter for the night. Trail up to the spillway ranged from bare ground to drifting to 24". First part of road you don't need anything but boots but if you wander out of the tracks you will need snowshoes. Everything frozen. No running water visible. Wind gusting to 20 mph. Beautiful sunny days and clear night.

Great trail!

I hiked it after a morning snow. The trail was snowy but packed down enough to hike with just my yak tracks and hiking poles. I tried to go down the other side of trail when I reached the turn around but snow was too deep unless you have snowshoes or x-skiis. The hike in the woods was nicer anyway. Good hike with a decent elevation gain. Pretty wooded area with snow capped trees.

Drifted sections with some bare spots on the south aspect trail of the lower lake. Nice trail with the current low snowpack. Waterfalls below upper lake are frozen. Snowshoed the trail well. Boot pack would be tough through some sections.
