We went on Thanksgiving day, just a few days after it had snowed in the area. There was a bit of snow, some partially melted, near the start of he trail, but once you were about a half-mile in, it was a full-on winter wonderland! The snow wasn't so thick that you needed snowshoes, so it was a perfect hike to still do with our near-7 year old daughter. It was only her second time seeing seeing snow, so there were a number of stops to throw snowballs :-). The temperature rapidly dropped by the time you got toward the end of the trail, so be sure to bring layering options depending on your cold tolerance (it was low 20s and windy). The snow at the top of the trail was completely pristine. A beautiful hike!

Hiked here a few weeks ago...absolutely gorgeous! It can be a strenuous hike all the way to the top..for me I'm guessing it was mostly due to not being used to the elevation. Hanging out at the top in a hammock with my best friend made this one of the best experiences ever.

Went up yesterday and though the leaves are gone it's still such an amazing place. The rows of Aspens casting shadows in the morning sun is spectacular. For those who've never went up to Lockett Meadow. It's a climb up the hill with lots of bumps and glad I have a Jeep. Recommend something with 4 wheel drive but there were plenty of small cars so a little forewarning and a grain of salt.

Beautiful hike and very easy. October was ideal with all the leaves changing! Unfortunately it's very crowded driving o what is one lane in several areas.
