This is an absolutely beautiful trail to do on a Monday morning. I saw maybe 5 other people. Most of the time I was completely alone, and there wasn’t a single other sound. The snow was completely iced over so spikes were necessary the whole way. Great workout — took about 4 hours total.

You’re gonna need spikes! Me and my friend hiked it without spikes and struggled quite a bit up to the top. A hiking pole will help if you have it. It was quite the workout hiking through lots of snow! We enjoyed a nice hot meal at the top and took a nap in hammocks. Definitely would recommend!

A good work out. I’m in pretty good shape and I started to huff and puff towards the top.

It was an awesome trail with spectacular views! Last .5 mile was slushy so make sure you’ve got some spikes around. Perfect weather, well maintained trail, moderately trafficked.

Mostly clear until saddle, doable with poles but spikes would’ve been helpful

Park at “S” curve Marked as Mill B trailhead. Hike in 1/3 mile for Lake Blanche signage. Lovely bench and plaque at bridge crossing is worth the sit. 7-11 slurpee slushee conditions in the late afternoon. Spikes and poles help stability- a requisite for me. My first time and not my last. The lake is solidly frozen with stunning views of sundial peak and Great Salt Lake! Some deer sightings. Lots of run off and trail is changing from day to day. Trail is solid with 3 + ft of compacted snow at top. Decent is pretty sloppy. Ascent is absolutely challenging due to vertical climb.

Hiked early April. Snow the entire way, so wear high boots and long socks.

Stunning views, nice people, and a great climb. Would recommend shoe spikes or high traction boots, the trail is very slushy!

Awesome hike on a beautiful day. A little bit of ice to make it more challenging. Definitely doing this again.

I forget how beautiful this hike is in the spring. It’s absolutely one of my favorites, especially with there being so few people on the trail. Definitely bring traction devices or you’re going to have a bad time. Post holing is definitely possible, especially on the descent.

The trail is wonderful and amazing. What is not fun is seeing all the trash at the trailhead. I picked up 10lbs. today. I believe most people aren’t deliberately trashy, they are just careless. Please, be kind to nature, our watershed, and the rest of us and look around before you leave.

HikingGreat!Snow

Great trail, though you really need traction. Saw some people trying to do it without... Incredible views with grand mountains in every direction. Lots of snow. We saw a small avalanche about a mile from the top on the opposite cliff around 11 AM today. Several signs of potential future avalanches too. Please be mindful of this and cognizant of the fact the the danger increases in the heat of the day.
