Skinned up to desolations and skied Powder Park. Snow was phenomenal up top. The further down you went the crustier it was. Beautiful trail, quite a bit of snow up there.

hiked on 11-25. strapped on snow shoes about the dog lake turn off... beautiful this time of year!

I hiked this on August 11, 2018 with a buddy. I think it took us about 6 hours round trip. I was not expecting the pretty intense scramble across some boulders on a ridge to get to the final steep push to the summit. I kind of lost the main trail in that ridge line but kept reconnecting with it.

The final steep scramble looks much worse from afar than it is. One you get across the ridge, just take your time and you'll be golden. The views from the summit are out of control.

This is a great hike to do if you want to get used to altitude since the summit is well over 11,000 feet. Also, if you start this hike and are not feeling like doing steep stuff that requires using your hands or you are with less experienced hikers, you can top out at Red Pine Lake. This is still a fantastic hike with beauty all around.

Have fun out there, folks!

I hiked this on Tuesday. The trail was quite muddy and slick. The lake is frozen and covered in snow. Beautiful little rainbows reflecting in the snowflakes. I passed 5 people on the trail. It took me 3.25 hours.

Beautiful views almost the entire time! It was a gradual incline until the last mile before the lake, but still
totally doable. Sadly .5 miles to the lake the snow pack dies out and you would need snow shoes to get through the final section so we had to turn around. Bummer, but the views up to that point were awesome.

This trail was amazing!
made my legs burn but so worth it!

I love this trail, I’ve been here several times and great incline not too steep but long. When you bet to “top” of that branches into couple trails. On the right. Ore covered and foresty and left more views and more of the similar incline as the beginning.

Loved this hike! Not as steep as Red Pine but longer. I’d agree with others who’ve characterized this as moderate rather than difficult. The lake at the top is a gem. Still doable without poles or traction but It is a bit slippery in spots though, especially once it starts warming up. The snow is packed now so you don’t really need gaiters.

Great day hike! Trail was snow covered from 9000 feet to the top. This was the most difficult part for me as I’m not accustomed to altitude ( from PA). Below that it is very rocky, so be prepared for both. The lake was beautiful, though there are other small lakes on the way up. Very few others on the trail, which was well marked even in the snowy areas, thanks to those who went before us. Views were absolutely spectacular. Despite the cool temps, the sun was very warm. Bring sunscreen, especially now that there is snow.

three fourths of the trail is spot-on with the routing and I went all the way up Mount Baldy and tried to go down on the North side I couldn't find the trail and it looked pretty sketchy to me, so I'm not sure how the previous people below were finding the route cuz it wasn't apparent to me where the route was and it just look like tons of bouldering fields and trees and you kind of had to like figure it out as you went. I ended up going back down through the lake area so be careful trying to follow this whole entire route once you reach Mount Baldy

Nice trail beautiful scenery. Saw some deer. The trail was snowy and slick in some parts, wear good boots. 10/21/18

Fantastic hike in the snow. Few people and amazing views.

Went on oct 14. Cold day with recent snowfall. Lightly snowing the entire hike. Trail was a snowpacked singletrack almost the entire way. During the last half mile or so (at around 10,000 feet) I hiked through 2-3 feet of snow following the footsteps of the maybe one person had hiked through it before me. Sorry for the post holing.. The lake was amazing in the snow. Complete solitude, I was the only one up there.

The trail grew less and less defined as the snow got deeper, I could tell others had turned around due to the snow. Be prepared with gaiters and spikes! although I didn’t have either and I was fine

Entire hike took 3h 40m round trip. 10.7 miles RT recorded.

This is definitely not hard. It’s moderate. It seems long though and not as pretty as red pine in my opinion. The lake is amazing though and better than red for sure. Without the ending I’d have given a 3 star actually.

This trail is probably one of the easier hard rated hikes. If you’ve done Jacobs ladder and summited or even upper bells, this will be pretty easy. Awesome views at the top though. Really fun for a day hike.

Went yesterday between some rain storms this week. What an amazing hike. Ate lunch on the hip between Raymond and Gobblers in the snow. Including lunch and a stop at the top to change socks, it was 2.5 hours up. I'm not much of a trail runner but I ended up running down most of it so I was back in just shy of 1 hour. This will become an annual fall hike for sure.

Awesome hike with beautiful views. Took us 3 hours and 15 minutes to go up and back. Pretty warm going up but glad we had layers going down. Passed 5 people the whole time and we started at 10 am.

Great hike. We clocked it at 8.2 miles. It's a nice gradual incline. Falls colors were spectacular. At the actual lake, most of the color was already dropped, but the lake itself is a gorgeous emerald green color. On a Wednesday with a mid-morning start, we only saw one bike and 2 or 3 other hikers. Do this one!

Hiked this trail just this past Saturday, starting at 9 am, and it was one of the most colorful fall hikes I've ever been on. So gorgeous, especially starting out in the morning with fewer hikers. Now is the time to do this one! The trees at the lake are all gray but the entire way up is the main attraction. I encountered many bikers but all of them were pleasant. Spooked myself and thought I heard some growling about 1/3rd of the way up but on the way down I determined it to be some water pipes gurgling (it was right at the stream). Overall an amazing trail.

This one is a beast! I was ready for a steep incline (hello, it's a peak) but whew! I was also not prepared for the fairly scary bouldering along an entire ridge. It was made scarier for me due to a lightning strike that tossed rocks up in the air nearby. The trail disappears and you are climbing on rocks with steep drops on either side. It is also windy, so don't wear any hats that wind can grab and pull off- you will lose it forever.

This is one of the best hikes I’ve done in Utah. The trail to Red Pine Lake is lovely, not too steep, adorned by aspens and beautiful views. From there the climb to the ridge features stunning views and solid footing. No soul-crushing scree fields that leave your boots full of rocks. The ridge and summit push require some intense scrambling with plenty of exposure, but it’s all worth it. I finished the round trip in 4:55. It was quicker than I expected.

Beautiful trees this time of year! The lake was unimpressive--it's pretty low, and the glacier is basically gone. I'm going to venture back up in the spring and give it another go. I'd like to see ot again.

It was quite steep and strenuous. The Timpooneke side was much easier if you're trying to compare sides. Havong done both sides now, if you're just going to climb to the top of Timp, take Timpoonele, not Aspen Grove. It's much less exhausting. :)

Trail was in great shape, very little mud, and leaves are changing and look great. Long hike, be prepared, and enjoy the views.

The trail is fine and as advertised but man someone is going to get hurt by the bikers if they haven't already. About 10 or 12 went by me and only one announced themselves and stopped. Of the others, 2 went by at top speed, head down, right in the middle of the trail, and I barely got out of the way. The rest never slowed or announced but I heard them in plenty of time to step aside. Good thing too or I'd be in the hospital right now.

First time to the lake. Wasn't too bad of an incline. I've done worse. The lake was a cool greenish color. There weren't a lot of Aspen in the area that still had leaves on them. There was a lot of color along the rest of the trail. Heading down I came across a few deer (no bucks).

I usually opt for hikes with peaks as the destination but this trail is a new favorite. We hiked up and back in about three hours with five to ten minutes at the lake. The trees are still changing so it's not too late to enjoy them.

Beautiful hike. Steady incline, but not too bad. My GPS clocked me at 8.0 miles round trip. Took a total of 5 hrs (spent some time at the lake). We missed most of the fall leaves, but the hike was still nice. Ran into a few bikers and a hand full of trail runners. No wildlife :(

Just did an overnight backpack trip at red pine, and summited pfeifferhorn at sunrise the next morning. Definitely a challenging one, but It is gorgeous right now. Highly recommend. Also, if you happen to see my grey, kids, RVCA hat the fell off my pack on the hike, I'd love you forever for getting it back to me!

Much busier than any other trail I've done in the Wasatch, but gorgeous. Only problem is staying on the trail, as there are "false" tributaries all over the place. We kept losing the trail after Red Pine (Though never straying too far). The final ascent up the Pfeiff looks intimidating from afar but is easy once you're on it. The spine to get there is a little spicier, especially if you're afraid of heights, but it, too, is pretty straightforward. I never felt nervous.

Sunny trail. Beautiful scenery. The lake was beautiful, even if it was low. I would, however, say this trail is more than “lightly traveled”. On a Wednesday morning (around 10), I saw dozens of hikers and bikers.
