Great easy hike with a beautiful view at the end. Great in the winter time and with all the foot traffic, you only need spikes.

Another great day on dog mountain, my dog loved the hike in the snow ( with his boots) Some good micro spikes, is all that’s needed as the trail is pretty packed down.

This is a very muddy trail with lots of roots and bugs in the summer...... But is almost the perfect trail for Crampons in the winter. As noted, it is usually packed down nicely so you don't sink in. Not too much elevation change either which can be a lot harder in the snow.

I’ve done this trail twice with spikes (and poles) - snowshoes wouldn’t hurt, but I don’t know that they’re necessary for the most part! It’s such a busy trail that it’s always pretty packed down, even after 30cm last night. Beautiful when the weather is clear, with a lovely view of the mountains and the city - not as exciting when its covered in clouds! I spent about 45 minutes at the summit waiting for the clouds to properly clear, but the didn’t - and even still, it only took just over 2 hours. A nice and quick trail that’s a nice workout without too much elevation gain.

Beautiful sunny day! Didn’t use snowshoes, micro spikes were more than enough.

Well marked trail with light traffic during the week. The avalanche rating is low below the tree line today, so the risk is minimal. The snow is packed down, so microspikes would have been sufficient. But I snowshoed this time.

Great for a quick snowshoe hike! Not too busy on a weekday morning. Lots of dogs. With some fresh snow snowshoes were perfect, but after a couple days without snowfall I could see it being packed down to where crampons would be adequate.

Good snowshoe trail, but a lot of off leash dogs. Some of the dogs barked and ran out of nowhere. First lake is pretty cool. There are a lot of ups and downs on the trail. It was VERRY busy on a Sunday! which was pretty annoying.

Nice short trail, but fairly busy and lots of (off leash) dogs. Lots of snow, mostly packed down. Most people had snowshoes on but spikes could work as well.

As of November 2019 it is icy, still muddy out in the trail. Use caution.
