Definitely I tough hike if your not used to elevation- probably not smart to fly in from Texas on 3 hours sleep and go directly to the hike. Considering all of that I made it 1.3 miles ( approximately 1700 steps) before deciding to be smart and take the 1st trail down. My stomach was jacked and my heart was pounding even though my pulse was not that high. Lesson learned - get in a few days early to acclimate, hydrate, and try it again. I still had a great hike and really enjoyed the views and light snow. On a positive note I did bring water, microspikes, and proper clothing

Note: went back today and made it up with no altitude issues. I will make this hike whenever I am in town - great workout

man what a workout but worth it. icy would suggest using spikes.

Great challenge for anyone. Scenic views. Well trafficked but not over crowded.

Challenging hike with beautiful views! If you have a normal compact car, you’ll have to hike the Spruce Lakes Trail before getting to where the Mohawk Lakes Trail actually starts. From there, it’s a lot of climbing uphill with steep rocks, but so worth it. Definitely make sure you see the waterfall on your way up (there’s a sign for it). The lower lake was pretty easy to get to, but the trail is a little hard to see/follow for the upper lake. Saw quite a few people fishing at the upper lake when we got there. Loved it!

Beautiful hike, but difficult for sure (its all inclined). It was so slippery, we had to slide back down almost the whole way. The only reason I give it a 4 star & not 5 is because you cannot hardly tell where the right trail is. We ended up going off trail & freestyling up for a good 20min of steep shrub & gravel. I will do it again when its nicer outside. :)

2nd time back and a little less rough but still very challenging. The final 200 steps are icy and spikes would be ideal but I did it without them.

Awesome trail and a great workout!!

Very challenging hike....risk vs reward on this hike questionable (especially this time of year). Not well marked, scree, ice....etc. Pick another hike in Colorado....no shortage of awesome/safe hikes.

Amazing trail. Best hike I've done in Colorado so far. Spent three nights on the trail - two at Comanche Lake and one at the upper Venable Lake. One of the days I climbed the mountain to the left of Comanche Lake when facing the main mountain (Spring Mountain?) and got an excellent view from there. There is no trail and it's very steep but worth it. I brought Panther Martin spinner bait and had no problem catching plenty of trout in both lakes (this was in August). There are marmots everywhere. Excellent views throughout the hike - highly recommended.

My favorite since even before it was ever open !

LEG WORKOUT! So so worth it! Feels very rewarding to have completed this one.

Way more than I anticipated but worth every leg cramp and labored breath.

I first learned about this place in 2015. I took the opportunity to climb it in June 2016. It is a rather tough climb, especially if one is not in the best of physical condition as I was. The keys to complete this climb is to be absolutely committed to climb to the summit, take at least 2 liters of water (I use a camel pack), take your time & rest when necessary, and enjoy the stunning vistas. I plan on going back in June 2019, & maybe even climbing all the way to Pike's Peak, time permitting.

It was my first summit hike in Colorado. Great views and a good challenge.

Great work out. Beautiful view. Has a wimp-out zone that heads back down for those who don't want to finish. But when you get to the summit (not the false summit), you find it's totally worth it. People are friendly and supportive along the way.

This is one of my favorite local hikes just did a video on it on Christmas day!!

False summit

Blodgett offers decent views for Colorado. The trail's not well marked, so it's easy to get off track. Furthermore, there's a lot of loose gravel.

My brother and I have visited this trail twice. The first time we only made it to the first lake because of weather we had to turn back.

We returned on Sept 2018 to backpack the whole 14 mile trail. Taking our time to enjoy the beautiful views and as well as cooking and drinking coffee we camped 2 nights. This was an amazing trip that sparked a huge love for backpacking. With encounters with birds who became our friends ( even eating from our hands ) going inside creepy bear caves and also being woken up by a family of mountain goats. We posted an awesome video of our trip if you want to check it out. https://youtu.be/6wEVmrBTh1M

Very hard, very worth it. Don’t bring your dog, it’s too much for them. The steps take about an hour, and then it’s a nice leisurely walk down the Barr trail. Beautiful!

The trail is mostly clear with some icy sections towards the top,my regular trail shoes handled it just fine. We took the bar trail back down since the ice was making me nervous. But if you have crampons/yaktrax then no worries. Wasn’t busy on a Sunday afternoon. We took our sweet time and did it 2.5 round trip. Love the views and workout.

Hiked 12/8/18 - Conditions were great. a few sections of ice/snow but mostly dry. No traction needed...just expect to be more careful on the small sections that are ice/snow covered. Hiked it with full winter loadout and completed the incline section of the route in 54 minutes. Then we took our time going down the Barr Trail. This is a great workout hike and even better if you add a summit of Rocky Mountain to it!

It does need some energy to get there, but worth it!

Love it!

Amazing, beautiful worth the pain. Took my out of shape and bad knee 3.25 hours to top. Bucket list. Pace yourself. Tough trail especially when it’s icy.

Update: Made it to the top with the proper gear (micro spikes and walking stick), and was still difficult. The entire trail is now pretty much is covered in snow and ice. With most of the trail being under the trees it will probably be like this for sometime. Highly recommend micro spikes and dress in layers if you attempt this trail in the next few months.
