There is a $5 day fee that only takes cash. Great hike to the top. The last mile to the summit was not as packed down but still passable. Great views and a fun slide down if you take the side without switch backs. If you don’t wish to slide down, go the switch back route, your knees will thank you after lol

Trail in good condition today but when the sun came out it started getting slushy quickly. Challenging winter hike with great views that make it worth it!

We went up Lazy Moose and down Lazy Mountain trail (the steep one). Lazy Moose was moderate. Really windy at the summit, but beautiful! Wear spikes and pants to slide down on if you want. Trail was in good shape and packed.

HikingGreat!Icy

Trail was nice and compacted. Went up and down without spikes or poles. Icy to descend in parts without spikes. Just hold on to the cables and take it easy. Great view today at -1 at the top.

I took the longer moderate trail thinking I should take it easy, huge mistake unless you've got snowshoes. The snow was so deep in some places the length made it treacherous.

$5 to park. Trail and stairs are in great shape! Quick hike, great views, perfect for an afternoon now that it’s getting darker earlier

Great trail. 17 Oct 20. Went mountain up and mountain down. Started at 830, ground was pretty frozen the whole route. Got in to snow about 1/3 way up. Some areas of snow from the wind drifts closer to the peak were about knee deep. Most was ankle deep off of the beaten path. Completed in 3 hours.

HikingGreat!IcyOff trailRocky

Trail was very easy to follow and find until the last rocky part of the summit trip. We didn’t quite make it up to the summit, but stopped about 900 feet before, and the views were still outstanding. The hike is rated as difficult for a reason. Come prepared!
