Great time to ride this road! Old Fall River Road is currently closed to cars. The road is in terrific shape, no ruts or washouts. You can ride to the Chapman Pass Trailhead but from there the road is impassable, covered in snow.

Loved the trail. We saw abundance of marmots in which they prefer not to social distance themselves. And we saw a long-tailed weasel. Spikes would be helpful. However the trail is doable without them.

Nice easy walking trail. Perfect for watching sunrise or after dinner in the summer time to avoid the heat. Good early morning spot for catching a moose!

Easy Hike, Bunch of Campgrounds and Aspen Forrest’s

Mostly clear, more snow packed areas as you get near the lake. I wore micro spikes for the last section of snow, but saw lots of people that were fine without them. Beautiful!

I hiked this today, it is open and really nice hike. The falls are awesome. It’s a very worthwhile hike. I was surprised at the amount of people on the trail

Still needed spikes and poles for the second half of the trail. Beautiful!

One of the top trails I’ve ever done in CO— and I’ve lived here for 8 years and am an avid outdoorsman. There is some snow on the trail — would recommend either poles or spikes, especially if you go later when the snow gets slushy. Some post holing later in the day, but not bad — definitely doable (even without spikes). BREATHTAKING & BEAUTIFUL. A MUST DO! We logged 11.7 miles, but started at the Bear Lake TH

Perfect hike for a family with small kids. Great views.

Great hike - strongly recommended. Arrived at 6:30 and parking was fine. Not too many people considering how wonderful the day was. Lots of shade on the trail so a good one for hot days. Beautiful waterfall and great lake. Bit of snow on path but did it fine in my average Nike's :)

Beautiful trail!

Trail is in great shape. Climb can be tiring but steps make it easier. Would highly recommend the hike and recommend climbing up the wall at the lake to a higher vantage point.

Wonderful day and great trail. The review citing the 13 switchbacks was very helpful. The trail was dry and there were not many people at 7:30 a.m.. We were rewarded with beautiful views of the mountains and deep blue sky. Glad I made it to the summit after being iced out in the winter attempts.Most everyone we met wore masks and /or stepped aside.

6/2/2020 Second to last day before RMNP starts the timed reserved entry system. Started this trail around 10am, not many people (after experiencing Emerald Lake just prior). Covid19 experience: People leapt off the trail while I was still 20 feet away to give me that six feet for social distancing. Some hikers had masks, some didn't (I think I would die if I had to hike/sweat with a mask on). A couple hikers left the trail, faced away from me, and didn't even look at me or say hi back as if I was a walking disease. Other people were normal enough. Rocky, dusty trail. At the top it started going downhill before going up the final rocky steps. The panoramic views at the top were amazing. Very few people, lots of rocks to sit on by myself. Much cloudier and windier at the summit. Logged as 6.1 miles (even the trailhead says it's exactly 3 miles to the summit, don't know why all trails says it's 5.6 total), took about 2 hours (ran down part of the way). Saw deer and cute chipmunks!

Great easy hike with other trails around it. Had a great morning there!

I think people need to be more honest about actually hiking the full trail instead of saying they did then giving a made up story about hiking the trail C,Mon Man!

Good first leg of Storm Pass to Lilly Lake. Turned around at Wind River junction. Older trail not used often. More recent horse trail use but likely 2 + weeks or older. Saw female elk near where Boulder Creek crosses trail. Elk birthing season is here.

Be careful going to Jewel. There was a mama elk that is very aggressive and protective of her calf. Trail is snow packed the last half mile to Mills Lake and then some snow from Mills to Jewel.

Did this a couple days ago (end of May). I only went to the Loch and back. Took us 4 hours just to do that but we took photos along the way. Wish I brought my crampons bc the snow packed the trail in spots and was slick there. I did not use poles but they would’ve been helpful. Thought we’d see more wildlife. Still beautiful. Got off trail a bit at Alberta Falls. The snow made it hard to see the trail in some spots. No trees are marked, so pay attention.
