Made it to Glass Lake today but had to turn around when thunderstorm and hail started. Poles and shoes with traction needed as it’s a pretty vertical climb in the snow. Super beautiful hike!

Lot’s of snow in upper half.

Great hike, definitely bring micro spikes for the top section which is steep and still very snowy. Decent elevation gain and a tough but good workout. The weather changed quickly on us right before we got to the top — thunder, lightning, snow, and rain forced us to turn around unfortunately. Even without quite making it to the top we logged 10.0 miles from the trailhead, it would have been about 11 total all the way to Sky Pond so I’d say the mileage listed on this hike is incorrect.

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.

Pretty and Easy trail.

Beautiful Hike. I saw a dusty grouse along the trail which I have never seen a bird like that!

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.

Only giving it 4 of 5 because there are QUITE a few “creeks” in the trail due to snow melt right now. I’d definitely recommend trekking poles and waterproof boots so you can climb over the rocks or go through the water dryly. It’s steep in parts, and it gets up there. By mid morning it’s warm, so go early!

Trail had some muddy spots from the lake surge from snow melt; but a very easy walk at elevation. Gorgeous reflections on a clear day! Third trip today- elk all three times, today a momma and calf moose playing in the water! Go early!

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

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!

Beautiful. A more panoramic view of the Continental Divide, whereas some of the more popular lake loops up the road are a bit closer to the mountains. This is relatively easy with great views.

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.
