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 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.

I got plastered by artificial snow makers trying to find the trailhead by the Brighton Ski resort, but once found it was a great hike! It was fairly quick, even with the snowfall on the ground. I loved skipping rocks on the frozen lake and hearing those cool Star Wars noises.

Excellent hike this morning. Predawn start to catch the sunrise from the top. Fresh layer of snow 1-2inches. The streams are frozen over enough to support my 200+lbs. Didn’t attempt the lake although it looked pretty thick. Plenty of deer to be seen and some moose tracks.

Did this trail yesterday, it hard to follow the trail with the recent snowfall and quite slippery due to icy areas, but worth the challenge and inspiration for capturing both visually and mentally the solitude of this area. Simply beautiful.

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

From Silver Glance I pretty much went straight up the mountainside to Silver Lake Peak.

Made it to the saddle, about 700 feet from the summit, but time and conditions forced my hand to turn back.

Started to get sketchy at this point of the ridgeline requiring bouldering / scrambling on ice covered rocks with a good depth of snow in some spots.

Disappointed to not summit but proud of myself to be able to summit future summits by not summiting this one.
A different route / time of year / companion(s) are probably needed.

Great hike, really beautiful. 3-6 inches of snow and lightly snowing all day. Well worth the uphill climb.

Absolutely gorgeous and uncrowded. The climb up to Silver Glance was brutal and Silver Glance wasn't as pretty as Silver Lake (in our opinion), but the views of Silver Lake on the way back down from the top were fantastic. No meese sighted, alas. A few inches of snow were on the trail near Silver Glance, but otherwise conditions were perfect. The road to the parking area is pretty rough so don't bring a fancy car.

This is one of my favorite lakes in the Wasatch. A good all around hike with a fantastic mountain lake at the end, that you can swim in. The trail gets fairly steep in some spots but nothing too bad.

Great hike to take the pups on with gorgeous views! Would definitely do the hike again on spring and fall! Mostly shaded single track trail with dirt and some boulders throughout. Had a nice quick stream crossing where you walked over some rocks and boulders to keep your feet dry. Almost all the fall leaves were on the ground already so the backdrop had a lot of bare trees. Not too crowded on a Saturday surprisingly. The drive up the road to the trailhead is pretty rocky and rough which was not very fun but the hike and views were well worth it. Parking lot was small so we parked on the roadside. Was glad to see that they honored the National Parks Pass so we didn’t have to pay any fees.

Nice hike and surprised to find it completely snow covered in late October. The snow made it even more fun, and the trail was still easy to follow.

Great trail to take the pup out on! Keep an eye out for the moose about 1/2 way up. He loves to hang out in the thicket by the pines.

Hiked this on Thursday. Great quick hike after work around sunset.

Beautiful hike! Knee deep snow once you get to Lake Catherine, but so worth it.

Moderate climb to get to Lake Mary, but well worth it. We did this about 3 weeks ago when the colors were turning and it was absolutely breathtaking. If you have the time, hike around to the backside of the lake which is less crowded - you can keep going on <0.5 miles more and you will hit the second lake. Beautiful hike, though tends to be popular and a little overcrowded at peak times.

Cold and snowy today! First part very muddy, turning to ice and then near the lake hiked in 2 feet of snow. We were going to hike to Desolation but didn’t have our snowshoes on! I like this hike but today was not great. Slipped and fell a lot on the way down even in good hiking boots.

Great view from Devils Castle and Sugarloaf Peak. Headed west of Sugarloaf and added Hidden Peak for a triple

A great hike with such breathtaking view in every direction. Even hit snow just before silver lake and then 4 in at glance. Stunning

Great trail! We only did a 2.5 mile loop but fantastic views and amazing fall colors! Would definitely hike this again.

Breathtaking! Fortunate to hike this right after the first snowfall of the season. Pretty fabulous for low landers from the Tampa Bay Area!

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!

I really loved this hike! You have a b
view almost every step of the way. I clocked in at 4.6 miles total though, but worth it. We saw 5 deer and a bull moose right off the trail. My 4 and 6 year olds were able to do this with slight help. The dirt road leading up to this is pretty bumpy though, that was the worst part.

Best hike ever!
