We hiked this trail on December First, and had the trail to ourselves all morning. Fresh snow on the ground showed abundant animal tracks, which we were glad to see. The lakes were already frozen with a covering of snow. There was only a small amount of snow on the trail for the most part, but snowshoes would have been nice in some places.
The trail is marked by blue diamond blazes, which are high enough to be visible in high snow. This trail should be easy to follow all winter long. We looped around the lower lake, hiked to the west of the upper lake and my GPS reported that the hike was a little over 9 miles long.
A great hike or snowshoe excursion, highly recommended.
