Great winter hike. Snow the entire way but did not need spikes and the snow was only deep near thr lakes. Definitely a steep climb after about 1.5 miles. The snow made it a little tougher. Lake is frozen over and the backdrop is beautiful. Ony saw one other couple on the trail. Note: The All Trails directions take you to the trailhead and the hike is just over 5 miles. There is a way to drive up the "road" to where the Three Elks Traisl starts and would cut the hike by almost two miles. However, even with 4WD and high clearance, there was too much snow to attempt today.
