Great hike! Went on Saturday. Snow is pretty deep when you get close to Lilian lake. Make sure to bank on an extra 45 minutes compared to what you would normally hike it in. Great weather though - all in all a solid 4 hours in total. We used winter hiking boots and that’s it - no poles and no snowshoes

Great trail... it has some woods and some beautiful views! Quite a bit of damage from a recent tornado!!

Great for a beginner!

This hike is insane. Quite scrambly at the top, so careful on a super windy day! Very difficult, had to stop many times, but great work out and beautiful hike

Easy hike with a beautiful waterfall at the end!

nice, easy trail to do with a toddler in backpack

Fun, easy walk with the family. Nice place to bring a small camp stove and make hot chocolate at the falls.

Not challenging enough for me personally but a beautiful walk on a sunny day in the winter. Will definitely do again.

Went up to Lillian Lake last weekend and trail was all good, didn't need snowshoes until maybe 3 minutes before we got to the lake, I'm sure with a little more time there will be enough snow to pull them out earlier. Didn't get to see too much, it got pretty white out but I'm sure its gorgeous! With a little more time we might have made it up to Galatea. Trip for another time but definitely worth it!

My husband, son and 5 year old grandchild and I hiked about 2km out and back again. Beautiful views, blue skies but lots of snow. Rolling hilly path which was a bit of a challenge for a 5 year old. We will definitely be back to hike it again and hope to complete the full loop! Trekking poles were helpful. We hiked to Rawson Lake in the summer so seeing part of the path in winter was a beautiful change.

We have only done it in the winter but falls are cool frozen. It is easy to connect to Hay Meadow (cross cutline as per map and turn right at little pump shack and follow river) it will lead back to the same patking lot. creating an oval. I like meadow last as flat and easy. both parts are pretty.

Really easy trail and very quick. Lots of traffic though so get there early. Do the hike to Upper Falls! You’ll see signs for it along the trail. It’s about a 20 min hike uphill but when we got there there wasn’t a single person.. where as when we arrived at Troll Falls there was about 30 people. No need for crampons or poles at the time we hiked. (Late December)

Great trail, wonderful views, sufficiently challenging!!

Hiked May long, steep clear trail to follow and many people along the way.
Great to do as a half day hike as it’s relatively short.
Took us 3 hours at a moderate fitness level and as a first hike of the year.
Curious to do again this spring to see what work has been done for trail development.
As stated by others aim to hike and summit early to avoid crowds. We started at 9, and came across many people on the trails, so aim for earlier and you’ll be coming down as everyone is headed up!
Keep in mind it’s a leg burning up and down as it’s constant elevation all the way up, so bring good shoes and lots of water!
Enjoy

Beautiful easy trail!

We did the peak in summer. Steep..best for cardio. Awesome views

Love this trail. Easy and beautiful. So many falls.

Was up there on December 16th. Everything was in good condition. Only went as far as Lillian Lake. Spikes were definitely an asset. Snow shoes not required up to that point.

Winter wonderland! Completed on December 2nd, no need for spikes or snowshoes. If anyone spots my gray merino knit touque please let me know! :D

Easy hike, we’ll signed and maintained...fantastic weather, highly recommend going on after the first falls.. pretty payoff at trail end

Great little hike. End of the hike over looks where I believe water should run. May see more of that in the spring, we hiked it in October and water was dried up!

Easy, beautiful hike. Did it twice this year.

No Widlings or Whitewalkers to report. A small contingency of the Knights Watch ventured out along the beautiful river and rustic bridges. Not too much traffic and made it half way between Lillian and Lower Galatea Lakes. The views are probably much more rewarding in the summer. Brace yourself....winter is coming.

I love this area! This trail is perfect for those who haven't hiked in a while. Waterfalls, views, swinging bridges. Apparently there was a tornado in early November and the trail suffered a lot of damage. It's clear now but one should use caution. There are broken branches and whole trees leaning and hanging overhead. We heard a loud crack and watched a large limb come crashing down right in front of us. They've also had rain which has left some parts of the trail submerged. Not too deep but plan on getting wet feet. The rain has also increased the flow at the falls, it's pretty spectacular. Right below the falls is a good place to take a break, we stopped for lunch and enjoyed the view. Rattlesnake Point is breathtaking. Talk about a vista! I expect in the spring and summer it comes by it's name honestly. I'm looking forward to exploring other parts of Savage Gulf State Natural Area.

Great views, easy trail to follow. Ran into deeper snow at the final approach to the summit lookout. No problem with spikes. Good hike if you want a mix of terrain and a hike in the 4 to 5 hour range.

Nice easy trail! Was great but you only need to do it once in my opinion

really great trail. set out by myself and didn't see anyone else the whole day. lots of sharp rocks and lots of ice. views from the top were worth the trip. yaktracs and trekking poles definitely recommend. even though mine broke on the way up. I imagine that it only gets harder from here on out and soon a 4x4 will be need to get to the trail head safely. Great day.
