Fantastic hike in the snow. Few people and amazing views.

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

Tough trail if you’re not in shape — uphill the entire first half, and pretty steep. Also, the trail was already coated in ice, which made the going slow toward the top (especially on the way down). Poles or chains recommended. But the view at the top was gorgeous, the lake was so serene — and we had two wild moose sightings (from a safe distance)! Highly recommend, just be prepared.

Great easy hike for anyone, especially for the kids.There was snow and ice on most of the trail this morning. Make sure to take gloves that’s something I was regretting not having with me.

Super fun
Great work out with family

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.

Hiked to the Lake early in the morning as usual but this time before the sun came up. Needed a headlamp for the first couple of miles. Even got to see three pair of eyes looking at me in the dark and was kind of eerie not knowing what was looking back at you. By the time that I arrived at the lake it was light enough to see everything. I continued up the trail to Twin Lake and think that I saw the same three deer that were blinking at me earlier.

Very much a tough trail if you are not in shape. The trail is very rocky and hilly but well traveled. Take plenty of water and take plenty of breaks to keep from getting winded.

It was steep but the view was pretty cool once you get there. We backpacked so we hiked at night and woke up to a beautiful fall view. Did it about 1.5 weeks ago

Super easy, super crowded. Snow shoe this one. It’s not bad though. Falls are pretty cool.

This is an easy hike. Really cool, because easy and good views. Straight forward, but heavily trafficked.

Really good view, really steep. Good warm up for upper bells reservoir in my opinion. West slabs scramble is a lot more adventurous, but couldn’t find anywhere to rate.

The problem with Donut Falls and the reason for my 2 Star Rating is because it was as crowded as when you go to Disney Land waiting on your favorite ride on a Saturday and admission to Disney Land is Free for the first time ever......

Although I am exaggerating Donuts Falls was way too crowded for my tastes!

I would mirror Julie Kirby’s comments. Great trail for running, beautiful, but way too many people. Also way too much dog crap on the trail.

Suuuper steep but 100% worth the view. One of my favorite hikes of all time.

Very challenging hike. But worth the views!

I wish I had more time at the top. Absolutely peaceful lake and views. Hike was very enjoyable. I want to go back in the fall!

Great time of year to go. Wild temp change from sweating hot to super cold towards summit. Definitely exhausted at the end but totally worth it. Didn’t actually need that much water. 1 liter this time of year was good for me. Friend took the wrong path near top so be sure to stick to the trail. You reached the top when you find the black mailbox.

Great hike! Nice elevation so it’s just enough of a little workout. Amazing view at the end!

Loved this hike! We live at sea level and did this right after getting off the plane in SLC, so the elevation was a bit tough in the beginning. We took it slow and steady until we felt better and would definitely recommend! It was a little crowded around the first lake, but thinned out a lot after that. Absolutely breathtaking views with a very cool mix of snow and fall foliage. Saw a deer, wood pecker, several chipmunks, and moose poo but sadly no moose. :-)

Gréât hike

Went yesterday between some rain storms this week. What an amazing hike. Ate lunch on the hip between Raymond and Gobblers in the snow. Including lunch and a stop at the top to change socks, it was 2.5 hours up. I'm not much of a trail runner but I ended up running down most of it so I was back in just shy of 1 hour. This will become an annual fall hike for sure.

Not my cup of tea. Flat. too crowded. Short walk. Good walk w/ younger kids.

Went on a Friday morning while vacationing right after the first snowfall. We are from central Florida, and it was worth every lungful of oxygen we struggled to get as we made the climb. One of the best hikes I’ve ever been on.

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