Once you get close to the first summit, there's snow but it has been tramped down and isn't really a problem. I was running and it wasn't very slippery. More positive still, the recent snow/rain has firmed up the trail a bit. (Downside to the West approach to Grandeur? You hear I-80/215 the entire time.)

So I did this hike today (OCT 14th) with my wife. It was snowing when we pulled up to the lot but we decided to trek on anyway. The views were beautiful. We saw a total of 6 deer (although two of them may have been the same ones just several hours apart). We also saw a moose. The going got tough towards the top because the last mile or so is about .6 mile elevation. Investing in some spikes for the shoes is probably a great idea. Some gaiters are probably not a bad idea but hiking poles definitely help to probe the snow. The lake was frozen and it was gorgeous. I forgot my sunglasses so when the sun came out the snow kinda hurt my eyes! Some hikers that were there before us said the route up to Pfeiferhorn was too tough because the snow was too deep. Overall great trail. Easy to follow.

First time on this trail and it definitely does not disappoint. A little more difficult than I wanted due to my son and I packing out camping gear as well, but had a great time and will do it again.

Beautiful hike! Knee deep snow once you get to Lake Catherine, but so worth it.

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.

This is definitely not hard. It’s moderate. It seems long though and not as pretty as red pine in my opinion. The lake is amazing though and better than red for sure. Without the ending I’d have given a 3 star actually.

This isn’t too bad. Only hard for about a mile. If you do this hike though, you might as well go one more mile to pfeiferhorn in my opinion though. :)

Love this hike. Super quick, only hard for about a mile tops. Gives you lots of time to chill there. Done this so many times can’t count. Ha

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

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.

Its snow time and its kind of moderate..Half of the trail covered with light snow, cold at the lake. Moose sightings and fall leaves make this trail awesome!!

Moderate to strenuous hike. Shaded the whole way. Nice fall colors. Good destination.

Such a beautiful hike! The last stretch is just as they say: steep and rocky. But the hike is worth it.

真的很棒,最后一段的攀爬那简直就是精华。很累,费腿。
值得一去,但是强度不小。

This trail is rated 'hard' and probably deserves it. I went up it today, Monday Oct 1st. It was extremely windy just below the summit coming down and blew me down once. It rained hard icy rain for about 10 minutes. But all that passed and it was fine the rest of the way down.

Facing the mountain, I took the right-hand path up and same path down. This is the harder path and is a lot of elevation gain in a short climb. You'll definitely get a workout. The footing is also treacherous with loose gravel covering steep surfaces. Be careful, especially coming down.

Did this hike yesterday and it was so worth it to see the view at the top! It’s defiently a harder hike with a steady incline. On Sunday not many were using the trail and it was cloudy so it was a great day to go. Only thing was you start getting into some steepness and straight rock climbing the last little bit. It was also crazy windy so just prepare for it. I’m sore now but I will do it again!

The last few reviews were very accurate. Highly recommend this hike.

Real steep but doable. There is some scrambling near the end on some pretty exposed rock. Take your time on this one, the views are worth the hike.

An amazing trail that offers good rugged uphill trekking.
Bring your hiking poles they will make your life much easier on this one.
Allow yourself extra time for a picnic by the lake.
A beautiful glacier fed lake awaits you.
Wildlife sightings are common, I wore hiking boots for extra ankle support for climbing on rocks.
You can’t go wrong up here on Red Pine or White Pine Lake. Enjoy!

Accidentally chose a severely windy morning, nearly blew off the mountain several times on the way down. This was a brutal hike, started at 5:45, got to the top just before 8. The way back was rough for me as well, fell several times due to the winds and the descent. I think this hike deserves a mailbox!!

A great trail with scenic views! Pretty tough trail with constant uphill. Worth it though.

Beautiful trail. Nice to take breaks around the lakes. Lots of fun! Saw moose right before getting to lake Mary. Incredible views.

Trail was in great shape, very little mud, and leaves are changing and look great. Long hike, be prepared, and enjoy the views.

This trail was amazing. We loved the section of white birch trees in the fall it’s beautiful!! This trail offered a number of different sceneries all beautiful in there own way. All uphill and downhill with a few little breaks in between! Overall awesome trail!!

Saw 4 moose and a coyote. There was a bull moose and cow with calf right at the start of the trail by the parking lot and a 4th on the trail. The colors are amazing right now and the view at the top was beautiful.

Really fun scrambling up after the saddle, to the Peak. Not as hard as I was lead to believe. Totally worth the effort for the view!

This trail is absolutely gorgeous. The changing leaves are beautiful right now and the lake is beautiful. We accidentally found ourselves between a Bull moose and cow moose. The cow moose was only about 10 feet away from us so it took us an extra 20 minutes to get down since we decided to backtrack a bit to be safe and wait for the moose to move. I've seen a lot of moose up here. They are such neat animals. Just be careful!

Steep. Yes. Difficult. Yes. Just keep pushing and the views are totally worth it. There is a log book on top. The scramble scary part is only about 15ft the rest is much easier ish. Lol.

Beautiful, I was not expecting to go this route but when a sign say waterfalls you have to take it. It does get a little intense but if I can do it anyone can. It’s worth the trek it took me just shy of four hours to go up and back down. I did round the lower resinous just to wrap it up but very worth it.
