Amazing trail! Pretty good incline in the beginning but well worth it! Lots of snow as well and it was snowing while we were there, which added to the beauty!

I went around a month ago and it was honestly such a good time! A little slippery because of the snow but it wasn’t hard to hike. Stunning views! Definitely worth it.

We went out early to beat the crowd, and we did. Coming back to the car, the snowshoe trail was quite busy. Easy trail to follow. Steady climbs with a couple of nice valleys to rest the legs before the next climb.

lots of snow today but it was a beautiful day. The temperature was just perfect, soft fresh snow and no one on the trail but us at 9am. By the time 11am rolled around, that was when the crowd started.

Nice trail for a fall hike. A skiff of snow at the base of the trail, turning into about 10 cm up at the lake. Made it up to the lake in mostly sunshine, then a small squall blew in from the West bringing light snow and blustery winds. Nice hike; a great way to close off the hiking season.

Path is well used up to the Lake. I tried to continue through to Mount Galatea but the snow gets deep and there are no trail markings to follow. Chose to turn around because the temperature got really cold up above 2700m.
