I enjoyed the hike up in the snow. What’s normally a super rocky scramble-like accent as you get closer to the falls is now a smoother, but steep, incline. I wouldn’t do it without spikes, I also had poles and they were a great help on the descent. The falls are beautiful, and the creek is lovely.

Hiked up to garner cave on 10/17. I had been told the cave wasn't worth checking out but I am glad I did not listen. The hike is a challenge, very steep the entire way with some light scrambling. There is also a hand rope up a 15 foot slab section. Just keep following the Alltrails map and you'll get there. There is no ladder up to the cave mouth only several ropes of slightly questionable condition. I used the rope along with the face to the left of the cave and had no problems but a non-climber may not be able to make it up. The cave is pretty awesome if you have not done any caving like myself. Definitely wear pants and long sleeves and bring gloves and a headlamp. If you want to safely reach all parts of the gave you will need to bring gear to set up a rappel including rope.

Just did Hidden valley on 12/8. Definitely bring your snowshoes and poles. The packed trail gets narrow in spots but overall a great hike. I would not recommend continuing down into Taylor canyon unless you want a challenge. There are only two sets of tracks going this way (one being mine).

Awesome hike with amazing views! Used spikes on my boots and had no problem. Hiked up with the pup and ran down. The snow covered trees were gorgeous. Do the hike!

I hiked this backwards since the trailhead parking was blocked by snow, so I entered in the camp ground. It took me a bit to find the trail, it has blue and red makers. For the most part the snow was a pretty packed but there were a few icy spots. I never put in my spikes but I think after another snow you will need snowshoe's. The trail ended closer to the street which helped, when coming back just follow the markers.

Just completed this trail and would suggest bringing some snow spikes. Nice trail when you want to finish a trail in under two hours but still want a sweat.

It was beautiful this morning. spikes were very helpful on the bottom but not needed for to top. we were able to get out of the smog and and have a great time.

12/7/19 snow packed almost entire way. Crampons would’ve definitely been nice to have.

12-7-2019 9am There was about 15 or so people on the trail, some doggies, and one biker. Pretty icy for the first 2/3 of the hike. I didn't use my spikes on the way up but I kept thinking I should stop and put them on. On the way back down I most definitely put my spikes on. Once you get to the flat part of the hike the snow and ice is melted and spikes weren't needed. Overall a good hike nothing to crazy but a good way to get above the haze and get some fresh air. Really good view of the valley and only about an hour in and out if your just walking.

I wouldn’t have found the trailhead if it wasn’t for a car parked across the street from it. It was the longest short hike I’ve ever done, trudging and sweating all the way up and scrambling and falling all the way down. Even following someone’s footsteps 1 to 2 feet deep on the trail was hard. I expected a beautiful, Harry Potter movie-esque frozen lake with a clear surface but there was only snow. Wouldn’t have noticed if not for AllTrails keeping me on track. A nice man on skis made sure I was alright and took a picture for me near the lake (looked like a snowy field). On the way down the sun started setting and yeah, all I could think about was putting my foot down on something that wouldn’t give way an unpredictable amount each step. Fell over a log too, to add to the experience. I’m from California. I’m used to miles of dirt and dust. This was hard because I had regular street boots. Got soaked from the thighs down, drying off in my car now. Would try again in summer.
