Beautiful views. Icy in quite a few areas. We didn’t use poles and there are spots that are very slick. The views are worth it.

Trail easy to follow in the snow. Waterfall partially frozen with an ice bridge over the pool at the bottom. Really beautiful. would be tough with deeper snow as the trail is very narrow in spots. Snow shoes would be awkward. KEEP HIKING!

Had the entire trail to myself and it was a stunner! Lake is frozen over and snowed on, so you won’t get much of a sight there, but the 2nd half of the trail is still dreamy to see in the thick, fresh snow. That being said, it is super snowy. So be prepared for winter conditions. I had a pole and my micro spikes on. Should have brought gaiters and snowshoes would have been nice at the very end. Also, the road to get up is VERY snowy and definitely requires a 4x4 and comfort with driving in thick snow and slush.

I was going to describe the road to the trailhead (covered in snow, but currently no problem with a 4WD), but the gate was closed later today, so one cannot drive all the way to the trailhead anymore until next spring. The trail is covered in snow/ice/slush so traction and poles are advisable. Absolutely stunning views of the mountains and the 2 lakes covered in snow, I super recommend this hike :) P.S: As I was driving back after the hike, I realized the gate had been closed during the day! I have an InReach so I would have been able to ask for help (if you don't have one, consider getting it!) but I had the luck of seeing a couple just around the corner on the other side of the gate. They were awesome and very generously drove me to the Forest Service in Leavenworth to ask a ranger to open the gate for me. Thank you!!! They were amazing! The ranger (Jeff Rivera) was also absolutely wonderful, so nice to meet him! A huge thank you to the wonderful people I met today :)

The trail is now completely covered in snow, and the switchbacks are mostly ice, but it was easily passable with cheap spikes from Costco. While we were there it snowed about an inch, but the trail was easily discernible as of noon on Dec. 1st. The views of the frozen lake were worth the drive and hike.

Nov 30 - 15° & clear skies. All of the trail was snow-covered; first half packed-down and very doable with regular hiking boots, while second half got much more difficult (knee-deep at its toughest parts). Micro-spikes and gaitors or snow pants recommended for the latter portion. Not for the faint of heart - but a beautiful journey! Made it to Nada Lake and back in 6 hrs.

Completed this trail in early September. Great weather, seriously stunning views the whole way up. We went counter-clockwise. loved it!

awesome trail - switchbacks galore!! Trail was well maintained. Beautiful views along the way and incredible pay off at the end. when you get to the top, make sure to go all the way to end to get a view of the cute city below.

as of Nov 29th the entire trail is covered in snow and very difficult to follow. at some parts the snow covers small runoffs that you can break through without warning. the depth of snow at the top of easily knee deep in places. I highly recommend microspikes and hiking poles.

Did this trail a few days ago. It was beautiful, brutal, and we'll worth it. However the trail map takes leads you onto Teanaway ridge trail when iron bear crosses over it. so technically you switch trails if you follow the map on here.

Went there on Sunday and was able to drive all the way up to the parking lot. Round trip was just 1 mile, but really beautiful despite the foggy and rainy weather! Lots of picnic benches when you first start the path, and on a nicer day we would’ve sat for a while.

Hiked this trail on 23rd Nov. The trail was in perfect condition. Patches of snow till you reach the scramble. From scramble to the top, few inches of snow. It was kind of a perfect day, no sun but no rain or snow either. Though it was a bit windy at the top.

Such a beautiful trail. Decent amount of creek crossings but I was able to hop along the rocks to keep my feet from getting wet. I did run it, but it would also be very enjoyable to hike because it is such a gradual and chill incline with a great payout. The service road to get there is very long so don’t be concerned, you are going the right way.
