Difficult on its own but if there’s any rain it’s very slick. (I fell multiple times) Got to the top but it was foggy so no veiw. Nice to get out of the house though!

Trail in almost perfect conditions! Small spurts of mud. It was very windy after the first bench but so beautiful at the top. I wish I would have taken the lazy moose trail down cause my knees/legs are dead!!

A few muddy spots but easily passable. This was my first time hiking this trail and its anything but LAZY. Took our time and the views were totally worth the hard work!!! Happy hiking

Currently not as muddy now, two or three places. Hiked up the lazy mountain side, put up our hammocks on the way down the lazy moose side. Steep up doable.

So there's 2 ways to get there. Lazy mountain trail is faster the Lazy Moose trail. the inly thing I say. It's pretty muddy. Went there yesterday but the view is so worth it.

Great hike! If you go up the lazy moose route it is much easier but longer. I definitely recommend going down the lazy moose route. There are two false summits before the real one. But the view is absolutely amazing!

Went up the Lazy Moose side, about a half mile to the first table where the trails meet, a couple coming down advised us it was a slushy postholing mess. Had a picnic, enjoyed the views, and made our way back down instead of moving forward. Trail was decent going up, horribly muddy going down. Would recommend for early hikes or waiting another week or two for it to dry out.

Muddy, wet ice, pretty steep at the start but the views and sun are worth it. Wore running shoes with $9 yaktrax with only a few slides.

Fun trail, starts off fairly steep and up hill all the way with just a few short level spots. The view from the top is amazing. Took the Lazy moose trail back down, it’s longer but much easier with the switchbacks. The warmer days are making the snow mushy which makes it tougher to get traction

Great 32° weather. Well packed trails, light winds. Cleats helped greatly with the climb. Would of struggled in a few areas without. Packed a coat which was needed closer to summit and snow pants that I through on to rally down quickly. Trail markers were on point! Terrific climb, wore me out!
