Great hike for the winter. Did it without spikes or poles, lots of fresh snow. First half was a bit strenuous but still easy.

It was fun gave me a chance to try new equipment.

Snow was pretty packed so we did fine in our microspikes and poles but it did get a bit sloppy toward the top where snowshoes not have been beneficial, but probably not enough to wear them the whole time. It was about 35 degrees and sunny and a light jacket, joggers, and light gloves was plenty. My wife had a light beanie and it was enough.

The very top was super windy at the lake so we didn't stay too long, but that was only at the very end. Would have been fun to have a sled to ride down the hills across the frozen lake!

Snow is well packed. Made it up 1/30 with only micro spikes just fine.

Amazing weather. Definitely snowshoes. Tough going but made it to the lake. Amazing scenery. Worth it. Cant wait to see it in the summer!

Beautiful hike! Did this on 1/25 - the first mile up to the split with red pine is pretty packed, after that you're going to want snowshoes or skis. The switchbacks immediately after the split didn't have a trail so on my way up I followed steeper, semi-packed ski paths. From where the switchbacks would end (about 2 miles in) there is a pretty clear path all the way to the end. On the way back down I did some trail-breaking on the switch backs, but my single path of footprints through 2+ feet of powder was only a start. Overall a fun hike, just prepare yourself for snow!

HARD ... But so worth it ...

Our Group ended up climbing a bit and then cut trail across to White Pine and then made our way down from there.

Snowshoes are absolutely needed ..

Great way to escape the Inversion and learn to do some basic snowshoeing.

Fun quick little hike, definitely recommended spikes or poles, both would be great but I didn’t have either and was fine.

Loved this hike. Views of the valley, tree's, tree's and more tree's then opening, then tree's then the gorgeous lake. Trail was packed down pretty well until the last half mile or so. Then snowshoes would be helpful but we didn't use them. A sled would have been helpful on the way down as well.

Did this on 1/11, the path to lower falls is packed and wide, a little icy at parts - microspikes were ideal, but not necessary for this section. Heading uphill after lower falls the path is much less used - snowshoes were pretty necessary, otherwise you'd be sinking 8-12" with each step. I couldn't get much past upper falls without sinking a lot, even with snowshoes, that section is clearly not travelled much in the winter.

Hiked on 1/5/19, most area are covered with packed snow, but last 1/4 will definitely need snowshoe.

Most Definitely a Wasatch Favorite. I did this on Pioneer day '18 and getting up to the lake was incredibly fast but climbing up to the ridge slows you down. once you get up to where the high lakes are (or supposed to be anyway.. dried out wheb we went) you are supposed to start climbing to the right and We initially missed the turn and ended up boulder hopping to the south ridge and had to cross our way over. once the pheif was in view it was pretty straight foreward and needless to say we took the correct way down which was much easier to see from up above. I will definitely do it again but now I know where to go! my advice to first timers is pay attention once you start working above the lake and stay to the right. It will save you a lot of time and effort.

Magnificent views, deep powder, and beautiful forests.

Great trail to get used to the altitude, first part is a little difficult for out of staters like myself but even with a few breaks you can reach the reservoir fairly quickly. Great mountains views up top and great views of the city valley on the way down. Great quick Christmas hike!

Didn't make it all the way to the Peak. I will be back to try again soon. No shade at the bottom but beautiful once you get up high enough to get up to the trees. Climbed high enough to see the peak but ran out of time.

Hiked the trail to the pass but didn't make the last 0.6 of a mile to the overlook. Amazing views

Amazing hike into the Pfeifforhorn Cirque area!

Got the opportunity to bust out the snowshoes!

Was very tempted to try for Pfeiff, but another day perhaps ...

This is my favorite trail in all of Utah. It is by far the most beautiful way to hike Lone Peak, but that requires one overnight camp. There are much more direct ways to hike Lone Peak, but this is the most beautiful. This is truly wilderness.

The hike up Lone Pk by the Jacob's Ladder route is fairly direct, steep, and efficient. I consider the Lower and Upper Bell's Canyon route BY FAR the most beautiful route, but also the longest, requires the greatest elevation gain, and is best done with overnight camping.

I have probably done this trail 10 times. It is so easy for me to get to from my house and is the perfect distance if you only want to go out for 4 hours.

I used this trail as a training hike for a high-altitude hike in California, and it worked beautifully. I have done it in the warmth of summer and the light snow of late autumn to test my winter hiking gear.

This is a great into hike to the fabulous hikes of Little Cottonwood Canyon with amazing views and an awesome lake to have lunch at before heading back down.

I hiked this on August 11, 2018 with a buddy. I think it took us about 6 hours round trip. I was not expecting the pretty intense scramble across some boulders on a ridge to get to the final steep push to the summit. I kind of lost the main trail in that ridge line but kept reconnecting with it.

The final steep scramble looks much worse from afar than it is. One you get across the ridge, just take your time and you'll be golden. The views from the summit are out of control.

This is a great hike to do if you want to get used to altitude since the summit is well over 11,000 feet. Also, if you start this hike and are not feeling like doing steep stuff that requires using your hands or you are with less experienced hikers, you can top out at Red Pine Lake. This is still a fantastic hike with beauty all around.

Have fun out there, folks!

I just moved here fro Oklahoma. This is a great short hike to start reaclimating to the altitude. First .5 miles is rough but the rest is amazing. Would like to see the trails marked better. I got lost but it was easy to get back.

Beautiful and short trail

A beautiful and intimate look at the first and second Hammongogs (Meadows).

Breathtaking views on either side. To the south there is Lone Peak and to the north Box Elder Peak.

I absolutely loved hiking through this area and seeing this side of the Lone Peak wilderness.

Highly recommended!

Be prepared for a long uphill grind! ...

:-)

The first half of the trail or so is the same as Box Elder Peak.

Start out at Granite Flat Campground and make your way up Deer Creek Trail.

Once you reach the saddle, head west and follow the ridge line up to the saddle.

There is one precarious spot where you will need to watch your footing.

Excellent hike this morning. Predawn start to catch the sunrise from the top. Fresh layer of snow 1-2inches. The streams are frozen over enough to support my 200+lbs. Didn’t attempt the lake although it looked pretty thick. Plenty of deer to be seen and some moose tracks.
