The track was pretty well cut all the way to the waterfall this morning despite the recent storms. The snowshoes were definitely helpful but you could pull it off with spikes if you're just going to the falls. The waterfall was completely covered in snow and not the giant icicle I thought it would be. Still amazingly beautiful. Soaked it all in with a little breakfast at the top of the falls.

Loved this trail. Lots of beautiful scenery, and in late July the wildflowers were even more beautiful than the mountains! Ran into a moose sitting in the middle of the trail! It’s a bit of a challenge, but incredibly worth the effort!

Attempted a climb just yesterday and the trail was pretty accessable. there were places where spikes were very useful. On the approach to the final climb snow shoes are required. My buddy brought his but I didn't so we ended up having to turn back. Another hiker on their way down said that he got to the base of the final climb but there was steep ice covered by snow that just slid away so we had to turn back. Those looking to summit this time of year need spikes, snow shoes, and actual crampons / ice axes.

This is the steeper but shorter trailhead. It’s less popular so I have found it easier to get parking.

Favorite peak in the Wasatch. The upper red pine lakes and the view of the ridge that divides BCC and LCC is insane. There is some boulder hopping/scrambling above the Maybird Lakes basin that was hard on the way out, but easier on the way back when you could easier scout your route. We saw a marten on the scrambling part! The last little bit is very steep but it looks more intimidating than it really is. Did this in mid July. Get an early start as it is long and there isn’t much shade after red pine lake.

The trail was really pretty and easy, however when we went down, there were approximately 700 Boy Scouts coming up on a Friday night, as well as some other groups, and there aren’t really a ton of camp spots. So I recommend it for a day hike, but if you camp there, you may be sharing it with a lot of the Boy Scouts in Utah county. When I have more time I want to head up to silver glance lake above.

10/10, very muddy but the veiws (and fresh air) are totally worth it

We got on the trail around 9 AM...only a few other cars in the parking lot. Trail is/was mostly visible due to previous skiers/snowshoers. Attempted to follow trail using AllTrails App, ended up cutting fresh trail for a while. Didn't make it the whole way up because the weather changed and snow was falling pretty hard. Visibility was low at points. Will be attempting again in a month or so.

Beautiful during the fresh snow. Avalanche risk was moderate to considerable. There were freshly down trees between the take-off of Maybird Gulch and the lower lake that warranted significant care and sticking within the tree line. Need snowshoes/skis this time of year.

Only went up to Lone Rock but the view was great there. Just so AllTrails users know, the road is closed for the season about a mile and a half before the trail head, so bear that in mind. Also the trail was quite muddy and slick towards the beginning of the ascent.

Tough hike but great view of both valleys.

Great fun trail. A must do with a group. When we got there, the road was closed, so that added another mile to the hike. The hike was very muddy, but very fun. Make sure you use the app to know where you are. There are diverging trails and we got lost and had to backtrack on one of them. The view is amazing. Hardly anyone was on the trail besides us.

Beautiful hike. The beginning was easy over packed snow and little to no ice. Never used spikes, but used hiking poles which really helped with the second half of the hike as the trail became steeper and more snow. We made it about 4 miles in and turned around before the lake. The trail diverted into a few different paths but we kept post holing and decided to turn around.

A great winter hike. Moderate traffic of backcountry skiers.

One of my favorite places to hike! Never disappoints. Always peaceful and serene with few people on the trail. Hiked it yesterday... was the only one on the Maybird turn off. Trail ran a chunk of it, mostly on the downhill, too steep for me to run up most of it. Used a new pair of icebugs cleated trail running shoes. The snow tracks don't follow the real trail but they get you there fine. I didn't realize it had dumped me out at the highest lake, so I kept hiking up a snow shoe track til i realized I was almost to the saddle up there, so turned around. beautiful day. nice to get above the inversion. Sad that we have haze in the air from the California fires right now. Could smell and see it. Maybe consider wearing a filtering mask until the fires quit out west.

No snowshoes needed today, but slushy and slippery. Micro spikes used after 9200 feel.

Nice winter hike. Trail is in pretty good shape right now. Snowshoes are overkill and there’s only a bit of ice.

Beautiful hike. It's pretty icy right now, spikes would be helpful.

I went in from the south but the ending point was amazing.

Amazing and beautiful. The lake is frozen over and most of the upper trail is snow and ice.
