Completed this trail 7/1/18.

Parking lot for main trailhead for ice caves was behind a locked gate, so we started our hike at a lower trailhead. Turned into a 21 mile day.

Hike was strenuous, including a short section over loose rock. The summit section is mostly flat, no ground worn trail, you have to follow large cairns to the ice cave itself.

Definitely worth the hike, beautiful scenery.

Easy, short walk to the falls. Very pretty, great for kids and adults. Benches and boulders to sit on.

The parking areas around the lake are open, what a great hike went up through grand view, just hard to find the second ice cave

Big payday at the summit in form of hundred mile views in all directions. Watch the summer weather, electrical storms come up fast. Edith Lake (I think that's right) a mile or so further north and quite a drop is a good overnight. that trail has had lots of new work and is very pleasant. The FS roads to get there were in good shape, although the last mile could present a challenge for 2wd lower clearance. Lots of blue grouse at timberline.

Short out-and-back to a pair of nice waterfalls. Trail is somewhat rocky. Though not particularly steep, the high altitude will get you winded faster than usual. I enjoyed my quick visit here.

Trail was a little rugged in some spots. But my 8 year old did well. Very beautiful.

Great little hike to a beautiful waterfall. Trail is good, but a little rocky. It is worth it.

Nice falls, nice hike, even a chance to do some rock face scaling! Two gorgeous water falls to see up here!

A relatively well maintained trail for the region, and one of the quickest routes to the "ridgeline" of the Big Snowies. It makes for a great day or afternoon hike. Lost Peak itself is very anticlimactic - the unnamed peak .5 miles to the south is taller and presents more remarkable views. Keep in mind that there is no running water nearby, so you'll need to pack in what you'll need.

I just did this hike 06.09.18. We did have to hike across some snow. I would suggest starting at the Ice Caves Trailhead and coming out at the Uhlhorn trailhead. If the Ice Caves Trailhead is closed you can start at the Crystal Cascades Trailhead and follow signs to Uhlhorn Trail. The signs are pretty off as far as mileage goes. We ended up with 28 miles instead of 20.

I love this trail. Normally I go out and back the same way instead of doing the loop. The trail is marked at the top with rocks. The ice caves will be on the left of the trail, like a crack in the rock. You can also do the Ice Caves hike through the Crystal Cascades trailhead; just follow signs to Ulhorn Trail. I just did that this weekend because the Ice Caves Trailhead was closed 06.09.18.

Perfect hike with young kids ~3+ years old. Good in all seasons. Some rock climbing or bouldering spots scattered throughout. Can connect with a hike up Jefferson Creek.

Good early season hike with easy access. The farmhouse is a good place for a break/de-layer before you start your ascent. Lots of elk scat in this area, but we didn’t see any large wildlife. Not recommended for young kids due to exposure, mild scrambling, and need to jump between boulders in a few spots depending on the route you take to the top. That said, rock stability was better than expected. Views at the summit are exceptional, but expect significant winds in the afternoon. Last, make sure to avoid descending towards the east as it’s easy to get cliffed out.

Nice little hike. Very kid friendly. Great views with shade. Not too crowded. Another hiker reported a black bear just off the trail by the upper fall.

Great easy hike that my 6 year old and 4 year old did easily. They loved the waterfall and I loved the view above the waterfall. Nice, easy hike!

A steep start, but once you get over that, the hike is still moderate, but spectacular. Reaching the ridge crest, you can veer off to Edith Peak, or continue on the trail. It drops down to Edith Lake. One end of the lake is a HUGE boulder field. Fun to go rock hopping, but I would not want to be there when another HOUSE SIZE boulder makes its way down from above.

Great hike complete with two caves and high alpine plateau. Recommend later in season due to snow. If you visit the caves be sure to tread lightly as not to spoil them for others.
