It's snowing from the old miners bridge to the top about 1.9 miles. White out conditions, if you go up from this point on, have a 4x4 that has an off road package and snow tires. This road is a 4x4 with huge boulders and holes. We enjoyed the ride, the scenery is priceless. It's only 11 mi from WInter Park, but takes over an hour. You couldn't see the lake as the snow rolled in. However, the continental divide is where it's at even on a snowy day.

Pretty easy hike once you've made it up the pass. The road has gotten bumpier the last couple of years, still once you've made it, the view is well worth the drive

Outstanding views but long rocky drive up

Road was closed 8 miles before trailhead, and it was unrelated to weather because there was no snow. It was a real bummer because we drove so far.

Beautiful, scenic. Wild flowers, lake views, snow. Fishing/fly fishing. This is not an easily accessible trail! Plan at least 1-2 hours to get to the trail and another hour to get out and you will need a vehicle with ground clearance due to the rough road.

Super simple hike. Incredible views of the Winter Park / Fraser Valley. I recommend this hike for a quick backpack getaway lakeside. Note: Rollins pass road takes 1-2 hours to drive up due to the road condition. Also, Plan ahead as Google Maps ( directions ) takes you to the wrong entrance road ( which will be closed ).
