Amazing views of Spray Lakes from the top! Definitely a slog all the way up in snowy conditions but worth it. Snow was hard packed in most places, but spikes would be a bonus to avoid a tumble. Make sure to stay right (South) of the boulder field to make it easier on yourself!

Awesome snowshoe hike. The views are amazing and there was hardly anybody on the trail.
I’d rate it more easy than moderate, since the inclination is very gradual except for some hilly parts near the end. Took us
3 1/2 hours to complete it including snack and numerous photo breaks.
Can’t wait to see the lake in summer!

Breathtaking scenery. Crossing back and forth over the wooden bridges is a real treat!

Very fun trail with a diverse set of terrain that was a lot of fun to navigate. Quite steep in places. The location of this mountain makes for amazing views of the larger local peaks.

First time out, windy. The trail was in good shape, wasn’t prepared totally. Needed spikes on the footwear. We try next time to try to make it to Lillian Lakes and the waterfall

Did this one solo in mid-december was in great condition. Easy, short scramble with no technical challenges. Can be done in less than 3 hours at a decent pace. Some snow on the way to the summit but did not need cleats, however I would recommend bringing them depending on your comfort level. Going a bit off trail you can climb some fun slabs on the way to the south scree slopes. Great views of Ha Ling and Mt Lawrence Grassi to the east pretty much the whole way, especially once you reach the treeline.

Good snowshoeing! Easy peasy, great views and along creek is fantastic!!

lake was frozen so fishing was impossible

Incredible hike that travels along Galatea creek the entire way to Lilian Lake.

Hiked in August 2017. Was snow free up to weather station. Fantastic views from early on.

Just attempted this (Oct 21st) with a couple of friends and if it wasn’t for the snow and sudden drop in temperature, I think I would have given this a 5-star rating. When we reached Lillian Lake, we attempted to go upto the Galatea Lakes, but the snow was too much and too steep. Also, Lillian lake was all covered in snow. Would recommend to hike this in the summer.

I did this in winter, and wish I had brought my snow shoes. Will do it again.

Gorgeous winter hike! Views are spectacular! When you get to the lake, you may see some Whiskey Jacks, which are pretty grey and white birds. Hold your your hand with a little bit of trail mix, or some crust from your sandwich and they will eat right out of your hand.

Spectacular views! A lot of snow on the trail this past weekend. I was disappointed there was no water going over the falls though. Looking forward to tackling it in the spring again!

This hike definitely lives up to it's name, it is going to be windy no matter what. However, the summit gives you some of the best views of the rockies. It was incredible! The day we completed the hike it was SO windy and cold, easily felt like -10 to -15 with the wind chill. I've done many "hard" hikes and given that this was rated "moderate" I wasn't expecting it to be so challenging. However I think the elements and my lagging fatigue from the previous days hike led it to feel more difficult. This trail closes December 1 for wildlife preservation so if you are looking for a challenging fall/winter hike I would recommend this one before then. I will definitely be back in the summer.

This trail is well laid out with 11 bridges along the way up to the lakes. There is a couple wooden tent platforms at the west side of Lillian Lake. A nice trail to some mountain lakes.

5 stars as the trail is well laid out and was not very busy, and nice views with the lakes.
