The trail was completely covered with hard pack snow all the way to lower Red Pine. It got a little soft up to the upper lakes but manageable with cleats. The accent all the way to the saddle was steep and sketchy as there were only a few tracks to help stabilize your feet. Still an absolutely beautiful day to be on the trail. All lakes are still frozen over of course but the Ridgelines look amazing under snow. Keep trekking

Fun, challenging hike!
There was a little snow towards the top, but the weather was great this morning. It took my group just under three hours to go up and back.

Went to the top today and didn’t run into snow and the mud wasn’t bad either.

This was such a gorgeous hike. Beautiful views of the canyon and when you get to the lake it’s stunning. The bugs were pretty bad so definitely bring your bug spray.

Awesome hike. Snow is still really deep but compacted for most of the trail. Fairly steep and can get difficult in areas.

One of the most beautiful hikes I've done. Nicely snowpacked for the majority of the trail, just used microspikes and carried snowshoes which were helpful for the top near the lake and walking around the lake which was frozen and snow covered. Completed 3/11/18.

Description is incorrect. This is in the watershed, thus pet dogs are not allowed anywhere Big Cottonwood Canyon, even in your car and definitely not on this trail. There are hefty fines if you do.

Gorgeous and a must do in the wasatch. Combine with Raymond’s peak as well.

its nice and relaxing for me and my 6 yr old son.and friends.it depends on your mood if you want a challenge or work out.either way your moving and losing some calories.you can go down by the dry river and hike up to the trails.

Love this hike! First time going and the scenery is beautiful! Wear your micro spikes or you’ll have a hard/funny time coming down ;)

Beautiful during the fresh snow. Avalanche risk was moderate to considerable. There were freshly down trees between the take-off of Maybird Gulch and the lower lake that warranted significant care and sticking within the tree line. Need snowshoes/skis this time of year.

Awesome trail. Very glad I had the chance to do this hike!

Super ICY!! Be careful. Pup loved it.. can't wait to go during the warmer months.

About 5 min into my hike I stepped in dog poo. I was being extremely vigilant about where I stepped because I could see little black bags and piles of poo scattered about the trail. Still, I continued until the kids begged to leave. We turned around and left and lo and behold, I stepped in yet another pile of poo before making it back to the car. So gross.

Despite not being terribly long this hike was still relatively hard due to the constant gain and loss of elevation. I went in august and it was still very cold in the morning and at the top so a light windbreaker would be recommended.

I really enjoyed this hike. It would be a great shady hike to do during the summer.

Favorite Peak of the year! We were grateful to have our poles and traction for the ascent and descent from the valley before going up to the peak. It was a great trail from start to finish and enjoyable to run. - Side note: do not start this trail at the paved trailhead. Be sure to head right on the jeep road about a half mile for the actual trailhead

Nice winter hike. Trail is in pretty good shape right now. Snowshoes are overkill and there’s only a bit of ice.

Beautiful hike. It's pretty icy right now, spikes would be helpful.

Amazing and beautiful. The lake is frozen over and most of the upper trail is snow and ice.

Gorgeous view! Can see the whole city view on the mountain

It was a little icy, crampons would be ideal, but we did it in hiking boots... no problem. The frozen lake looks beautiful. Saw 2 large moose near the trailhead

Beautiful. Not too steep. Great hike!

First mile and distance from the saddle to the top was pretty steep. And the top was freezing cold! All worth the time and effort. Took us about 5 hours total. Many false peaks, so keep going until you actually can’t go up any more. Would love to do mount Raymond (which is left at the fork when you get to the saddle) but could probably do both goblers and Raymond in one day if you wanted to put in an extra hour.

BEAUTIFUL VIEWS from Gobbler’s Knob! One of my favorite hikes I’ve done in the area and totally worth the butt kicking the trail gave me. :)

I hike a lot, but this is the most elevation gain I’d done on a hike and it was intense. Took me 2 hours to get to the top.

I have never hiked kings peak and I had a goal to do it this year. Yesterday was probably my last chance. Blue skies, with a high of 45 F. 18-hour hike, only 11 hours of sunlight, 2 feet of snow covering the trail in several spots. I had the entire mountain to myself; didn't see another soul.
It was just about perfect.
It is not my favorite mountain. The boulder scramble near the top is a slog, especially when they are half covered in snow, but I am glad I did it. I will have to try it in the summer.

Paved road not too bad- most cabins shuttered- at 8 am saw no cars. Trail was good until about 8900 ft when it was too deep snow and slippery for me. Saw nobody else the first 4 hours of my hike.
