Could not get all the way without snowshoes around 2pm on 1/20. I got as far as the junction for Dog with micros. Beyond that was frustrating post hole madness. Turned around about .25-.5 miles from the junction.

But. It's beautiful and everything before the junction was easy.

The last half mile is a killer (I was NOT prepared, it was my first time hiking it). It took me almost two hours to get to the falls. Wear spikes and bring poles because it is slick. All in all I enjoyed it! I want to hike it in the summer, which I hear is harder because you don't have the snow to protect you from the rocky trail.

Loved this hike. Views of the valley, tree's, tree's and more tree's then opening, then tree's then the gorgeous lake. Trail was packed down pretty well until the last half mile or so. Then snowshoes would be helpful but we didn't use them. A sled would have been helpful on the way down as well.

Gorgeous trail, and best of all dogs are allowed every day!

I was not prepared for how rocky this was. however, I had a great sense of accomplishment when I got to the falls!

This hike is great in the winter. Got to the waterfall just before dark. I recommend hiking down in the dark. Peaceful and a nice view of the city when there is no smog of course.

Super pretty with all the snow. A bit steep. Fun to see people sledding and skiing down!

Trail is in great shape for wintertime. Well packed snow until the saddle, then post hole steps for a bit. Once on the mountain ( after the big right turn at top of saddle ), it is back to packed trail. Last bit of the summit is a bit sketchy. Once on that East side, the trail normally switches back to the West, then one last switch back to the Summit, however it is just kicked in steps on the East side. Be very careful to not slip and fall, as could be dangerous. View are great, and didn't see a soul add day on the trail. Road was crowded coming back down.

Hiked on 1/5/19, most area are covered with packed snow, but last 1/4 will definitely need snowshoe.

We had a great time on this trail. The trail was packed pretty well up to the first falls but wearing spikes helped from sliding backwards. After that the trail takes a sharp turn up and to the right which became less and less packed as we went. We brought snow shoes and switched to using those at this point in the trail. We used trekking poles the whole time though. With the warm weather today on our way back down the snow became heavy, wet and slippery.

The trail was traveled enough and the snow was so packed that we never used our snowshoes. Hiked a little past the Mud Springs Trail junction. Started just as it was getting light and watch the sunrise lite up the mountains behind us. The morning light made the mountains look incredable

Winter gate is closed, so it ads 1.5 miles to the start of the trail. Trail is well packed until the saddle (at about a mile in from the trailhead), only needing yak-tracks. A short segment of the saddle is not well packed- maybe from the wind blown snow. Once you make it around the corner to the right the trail up Mt Arie is again well packed except for the very final stretch to the top. The hike is quite steep from the trailhead to the saddle and still climbs afterwards, but not as tough. Amazing view all around!!!

Hiked this on New year's day and it was great! Lots of fresh snow, but still not hard to find the trail to the lake. The first half (until the fork to Dog Lake) we carried snowshoes because boots were enough, after that (while not entirely necessary, some people only had microspikes) we were glad to have the snowshoes, it certainly made the trek easier!

Very steep inclines the whole way. Did this back in the Spring but a gorgeous view at the top.

This hike was beautiful with all the snow this morning. I was the first on the trail with all the fresh powder from the snow. The lower falls was had so much snow coverage that you could only hear the water trickle down. Beautiful untouched snow! Couldn’t go much farther than the first falls. Highly recommend for some stunning views!

You need micro spikes as the trail was completely snow covered. I don’t think the view is as good, as the hike up the pipeline trail to the salt lake over look, but it’s still pretty

Microspikes are your friend for this trail.

Beautiful hike in the snow at night with headlamps. Only needed microspikes as the snow was packed down on the trail, despite deep snow on the sides of the trail.

AWESOME VIEWS!

I swear I wrote a review for this a while back ....

Anyways .... I Did this one back in July!

It was awesome!

Would like to do it again in the winter w/ the dogs. :-)

I hiked this in just boots, although I would have felt safer with spikes on too. This was a cool hike in the winter.

Steep hike with some ice and a bit of snow but a lot of mud. The weather was warm but it was windy and cold at the top. A great workout after all of the holiday gatherings so far.

Gate is closed, so add another 3 miles to this hike. Beautiful views!

Great trail. First time doing this one and the view from the top is gorgeous. No need for snowshoes or spikes on this day. Trails are a little narrow with some steep drop offs on some parts. Views on the trail are gorgeous too.

Great trail. It's well-worn in the snow and you should only need microspikes unless you're going up right after a storm. Wonderful views of the canyon and valley all in one hike.

Amazing hike into the Pfeifforhorn Cirque area!

Got the opportunity to bust out the snowshoes!

Was very tempted to try for Pfeiff, but another day perhaps ...

:-) _/|\_

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!

Today was the first time I hiked this trail, and, Wow!!! I have hiked a lot in Arizona, and I’m getting started on Utah hiking. This was easily one of my favorite hikes ever. The snow made it especially scenic and challenging. I went to the lower falls, then I went even farther up. I just couldn’t get enough of this trail. Note that everything beyond the WATERFALL sign gets pretty tricky in the snow.
Definitely recommend this hike to anyone who is up for the challenge.
