Saturday Mornings Map

Very easy. Great for small dogs that get tired easily. Still a lot of snow and lake is frozen with a lot of ice fishing.

Beautiful views from every angle, friendly people on the trail every time we go, great way to get out and be active! Bring your camera and friends too! Dogs love it also.

good easy quick loop

Bring microspikes in winter months.

Lovely at sunrise!

Very easy hike with some cool rock formations that provide great picture opportunities. Completed with a 1.5 yr old and 4 yr old without difficulty.

Went up when it was frozen over with some friends. It's tough getting up and back down with all the snow, but so worth it. Some people hike up and sled / snowboard down. You get to walk around on a big frozen lake once you make it all the way. Really awesome.

Lots of people but great easy hike with great views. We were able to carry our 10 month old in a soft carrier without any issues.

Beautiful views. Great easy hike!

Gorgeous winter hike. Tough with the extra mileage due to the road closure. Definitely bring snow shoes.

Fun day hike! Only downside would be the amount of dog poop everywhere.

Very easy, beautiful hike. If you’re looking for something non strenuous and short this is a good one. Fun to sled down the hill in the winter too!

We hiked this on Sunday afternoon and it was windy, cold, and awesome. Be advised that there is . $5 fee to park in the nearby lots as they are on private land. Cash and checks are the only form of payment accepted. There are two lots, on one to the north and one to the south of the trail head. It's a quick walk to the top, just keep to the main trail and avoid what look to be off road vehicle trails that veer off to the right. I think there are two on the way up. The top was WINDY. I'm guessing around 50mph gusts and a steady wind of about 30mph. The kind of wind you can lean into and it will keep you upright. The temp was around 9 degrees and with the those kind of winds we didn't stay up too long- we didn't have the gear necessary to hang out in conditions like that. But it was beautiful up there. We shall definitely return for more exploration!

It was 65 out and absolutely beautiful. We went during the day and it was very busy. Stunning views! The trail does get thin in places which makes it hard to pass people coming in the opposite direction especially if you have a dog with you. We had a great overall though. We will definitely be back.

It’s great if you’re looking for a relatively easy trail with great views. The trail was a little packed down for snowshoes, but slick enough that you’d be better off with a bit of extra traction. Just be prepared for a lot of wind at the lake.

Snowshoed to the lake today and part way up to glacier. Lots of snow still, very windy. Beautiful views! Everyone says it's easy but felt it a bit challenging for us Minnesotans (but the cold didn't bother us), maybe since we are still adjusting to elevation. It was a steady climb to the lake and steeper to the glacier. Want to make a trip back in Spring or Summer. Ran into several people even on a Thursday afternoon.

Great views, moderate in difficulty. We did it with layers and good boots as most snow was melted away. Beautiful cabin at the end, totally a great spot for lunch. started on Burro trail, connected to Mountain Lion to get there.

Close by and easy trail. Great views.

Traction would have been nice, but not necessary. A go to when you only have an hour of free time to get in a good view.

Road is clear until the next snow, never even considered using 4WD. Brought up 8 people and a bunch of sleds, and had a blast! Ended up sledding down the glacier onto the frozen lake, sleds are a must here if you're up for the adventure!

Tons of snow, but you can do this with waterproof hiking boots. Not too hard! Was a good challenge for a winter hike. Did it on a sunny day, maybe 45 degrees. Just follow the trail to windy peak. Only saw one other person on the hike.

Great short hike. Plenty of amazing views. Bring a lunch and stay awhile, highly recommend for kids and dogs.

Hello. We are thinking about doing this hike tomorrow (Jan 27). Does anyone know if we will need snow shoes? TIA!

on St. Mary's Glacier

Road was snowpacked from the start. If you do not have awd/4wd AND winter tires do not go. You will most likely crash, get stuck and put others in danger.

Beautiful hike! Bring a sled if you want to do some sledding!

Very pretty views and not much shade. I️f you don’t want to hike up a bunch of stairs I️ recommend parking down in the south lot. Beware the north lot!!

Good quick hike, then get a cardio workout at the amphitheatre, then hike back to your car. A good 4-5 hr hike. Morning best to avoid the crowds (i went on a Friday)

If I wanted to Do this Hike THIS weekend (Jan 19) Around 10:30am, wondering if I'd need snowshoes. Has anyone hiked it in the past couple of days?

One of the most beautiful sights these eyes have ever seen.

Cute, easy trail with beautiful red rocks all around. The views of the city are nice from here as well! It wasn’t the most exciting trail and the shrubbery was pretty brown and dead in January, but still a great walk.
