Great day to hike this trail! The trail is full of snow but it’s pretty packed. Micro-spikes are necessary as some parts are steep enough to make you slip!

A slog in the soft snow today. Snow on trail starting around 2600’. Spikes recommended above the steps.

Icy and slushy so I recommend micro spikes. It took me an extra hour total to complete the hike.

Almost perfect hike today.

Perfect day! Snow was firm all the way up to the balcony. Another hiker went up to the museum and said that he did not have any issues. As the morning progressed and on our descent the snow became a little slushy but we were fine in our spikes. Had a great brunch of PBJs and Korean coffee on the balcony. Couldn’t have asked for a better day!

Did this hike today (1/18) and the trail was difficult to hike without snowshoes as there are a few feet of snow beneath you and it is not compact. Spikes won’t help. Beautiful otherwise.

My friend and I arrived yesterday to some seriously wet weather. Both of us had come prepared with gaiters and hiking boots that were waterproof. It was a good thing we did because there was a ton of slushy snow and mud throughout the first half of the hike (first 0.5 mile). It would be best to bring Yak-Trax or some form of traction devices for your shoes. The trail was very slushy going up, so it made it tricky coming down but is totally doable if you take it slow. The trail was beautiful and plenty steep for those who like a good workout. The balcony had a great view and payoff for the short hike up the mountain. We could have gone another half mile up to see the museum but decided to return to the trail head instead. I'd be happy to come back here in the Spring to see what the trail looks like then.

Raining. There were a lot of puddles (water and ice/snow and mud) on the trail for almost the first half of the trail so definitely recommend good water-proof shoes. It was better as the elevation gains and there were all snow. Also don't forget microspikes (or snowshoes, probably not as good as microspikes) as there were snow from the beginning of the trail.

I arrived to the parking lot at 8:50 and there were only 7 cars there. This parking lot requires a Discover Pass. The first 3 miles of the trail is snow free but there are some muddy spots which can be avoided easily. Then a thin layer of snow starts. After the fork to the Granite Lakes Trail, the snow gets thicker and as you ascend there are some parts with may be 8 inches of snow. But there were compacted footsteps and walking was no problem. It just slowed me down. When just before I start descending towards the lake, I put on my micro-spikes and they helped a lot. The last depression to the lake, before and by the boulders were pretty slippery and could be dangerous (be extremely careful)! I also recommend using haters if you own a pair. I headed back as soon as I could see the lake. There were no points to go further. There are also a lot of small creeks that are easy to cross. The trail is really beautiful at this time of the year. And I love the snow on the trees. The lake was completely frozen and fabulous.

What a great hike. Steady incline, beautiful views; plus, it snowed today! The change was so fast. A few drops then BAM! Nothing but white. It was so peaceful. Glad I went.

Did this hike on New Year's Eve and the weather conditions were terrible but wanted to end the year with a challenge and a challenge it was. Crampons\microspikes highly recommended.
