It was a bit challenging since the trail was covered in snow. We had to trail blaze through snow since we lost track of the trail multiple times. Lake Gilmore was still frozen, but such a gorgeous site. Watch out for running water underneath the snow so you don’t fall. Difficult, but well worth it if you take your time.
