We started at 9:30 and only hiked 2 miles in when the trail got too difficult in snow shoes. It was beautiful and you’re in the trees the entire way so even thought it was windy, we didn’t have any wind to speak of in the forest. We only saw 2 other couples.

Did this February, 15 2020. the trail was covered with about 6 inches of snow in places and dry on some of the south faces. we were able to pick it up in a few places but for the most part ran the ridge. Lots of fresh elk and deer sign and trails and very fresh bobcat tracks couple horses max. The descriptions for the trailhead in earlier posts are dead on.

I saw lots of fresh tracks and scat from a large mountain lion today on the northwest side of the upper loop, fyi.

great short trail, enough of an incline to feel like you are working and awesome views! 2/21- trax were helpful but probably not necessary, trail was packed down well.

Cute little trail but definitely not worth it in the winter.

Super fun trail! Pretty snowy up around the top loop (Feb 17) but the rest of it is very runnable (for the trail runners reading!). Manageable without spikes for the time being.

Had a great time snowshoeing up to the lake today. The snow was very deep with all of the fresh powder so we were definitely blazing some trails. Slow moving day but was fun none the less! Recording Error: Forgot to start watch. Inaccurate pace/speed

Did some snowshoeing on Old Flower Rd. I started on the west side of the road off of the road that takes you to CSU mountain campus.

Half the trail is on a gravel road leading to the dam, and the other half is through a wooded trail with lots of ice and rocks. Did the trail portion with snowshoes, but crampons would have worked (less cumbersome). Beautiful views and make sure to take the small trail up to the top of the dam!

First loop was fine. Easy to follow and a well worn path. Second loop was very tough to find. We hiked up the hill, but got tired of post holing through snow over our knees. Only made it 5 miles total. Might be a good place to take snowshoes, but was tough without them. Brought micro spikes, but didn’t need them. The only bad spot was the parking lot. Will get worse with warm temps and sun shine though. Will have to come back in the spring and see the rest of the trail.
