Hiked it early this morning and had the trail to ourselves for the most part. Beautiful weather, saw three moose. Trail is a bit icy/slick in places, but manageable. Views throughout are amazing!

Very pretty fall colors and nice reward at the end! Very hard though. Rocky and icy which adds to the incline but worth it!

Pretty sweet lil gettyup. Took about 1hr & 40 minutes to reach the lake...with my 75L pack filled. Decent temps, but holy hell the wind was off the charts. Be sure sure to bring your bat wing suit! Nice place to camp with a few different options.

Great birding up in this area! The trailhead is in the corner of a busy parking lot but I see very few people on the trail every time I go. There's a fair amount of wildlife other than birds that's exciting to run into as well (moose and some pika towards the top in the rocky areas). I would highly recommend this trail! ❤️

One of my favorite hikes in the Wasatch. No snow on the trail right now, but parts were pretty icy, especially in the second half. Spikes would be overkill but poles and tread-y shoes would have helped on the downhill. (It did get easier later in the day; I started early when it was all still frozen.) Blanche is pretty, but I think Florence (or Lillian, I can never remember which is which) is even prettier. Just head north along Blanche; the other two are just past the second retaining wall. Actually, just roam around a lot when you get up there; the views in all directions are incredible.
