Easy rehab hike. Haven’t checked this trail out til today. It was closed during the calving season and so I did Mud Lake.
No snow/mud. One short icy section.

Super late fall hike. In the 50s and was pleased to find that the majority of the hike was protected from the wind which was heard gusting in the vales.

Only had one glimpse of the Back Range and that was of Old Baldy. Better views on the Mud Lake hike.

The ruins of the Bluebird Mine and the DeLonde Homestead were quite interesting.

Managed to stretch it to 5.8mi.

Did this one first time at night NO off road lights. stock yj. found lots of snow.

Beautiful views with snow packed roads. 2003 Wrangler Sahara 31 inch tires no lift.

Snow ice the whole way. Be sure to have micro spikes. Ran out of time and had to turn back prior to the lake. No wild life but lots of tracks.

Beautiful hike, some washed away areas near end and the connector and bridge at 2.4 miles are gone...

Go up here all the time. Lots of water crossings for the dog, the loop makes its way through the burned area, presenting some obstacles, otherwise, very serene and one of my favourites!

Bring your micro spikes, it can get slick in winter.

Micro Spikes and waterproof hiking boots a must. Snow and ice about 80 % of the trail. Beautiful views of snow capped mountains, frozen waterfalls, frozen Diamond lake. Windy cold at the lake. Wear layers. Even with a 4x4 vehicle, the car slid backwards attempting to climb an icy road - scary but the ABS system helped. So we had to park 1.5 miles from the trailhead, making the hike 8.2 miles RT and elevation gain 1,575 feet. Definitely want to go back in the summer.
