Completed the entire loop. Didn't need snow spikes. Absolutely beautiful!!! I would recommend getting at the Trailhead very early to score a10$ spot in the overnight parking area, otherwise you have to shuttle in after 8am, could be pricy. Lots of people, but hey it's a bucket list type hike so enjoy and make some trail friends. Snowy in places, very muddy on West Maroon trail leading up to West Maroon Pass. Enjoy!

Awesome hike ! Beautiful views ! Very rocky so watch your footing. Pretty crowded even on a weekday but well worth it

Great hike. Easy incline and lots to see. Not too crowded on a Tuesday but parking was still hard. Go early if you can. Saw two mousse yesterday!!

My wife and I hiked the four pass loop clockwise in 4 days 3 nights, found the hike very challenging and dicey in some area's, coming down trail rider was very scary as part of the trail was covered in snow, loose rocks from a previous land slide and then more snow, it definitely tested our nerves. The hike was well worth the sacrifice though as the scenery was incredible, if I were to do it over again I would choose to do it around the end of August or the beginning of September when the trails are clear and hopefully more dry.

Crowded

Went clockwise hitting west maroon pass first and was grateful we did! Still a good amount of snow patches and definitely needed my trekking poles. Important to mention that it is 26 miles from CRATER LAKE not the parking lot, which adds a total of six miles more if you're lucky enough to get parking there. This hike is beautiful! But must be prepared for all weather! We got hit in a hail storm going up trail rider pass and while we prepared for rain , hail was not a thought. That being said, the sights were amazing, the trail hardly trafficked after west maroon pass and it felt like we had the world to ourselves.
