12.3.17 Trail was amazing!! Very slippery right now if you walk from the very bottom, but definitely doable. would recommend sturdy hiking boots and many layers - it was quite cold and windy at the top!! I would 100% hike this again!!

Great hike. Nothing too strenuous and great view. Lightly trafficked today. Short drive from Denver (50 mins). Little slick in some area. Will be doing this one again!

I can easily call this one of my Top 10 Hikes due to the beauty of it all. When at the overlook for the main lake and waterfall, being next to 3 more lakes up there I was in Awe and did not want to leave. Uxexplianable Beauty kept me up there 7 hrs. Climbed up some dangerous snowy glaciers and was trying to get to frozen waterfalls, but was careful and it was super worth it.

A perfect hike! Beautiful views. Slick in some areas and definitely snowy this time of year, so I would recommend wearing waterproof shoes with some good traction. And, as always, layers are key!! Very cold at the top.

Is camping still allowed if gates are closed? Or is it just hiking

Hiked this trail today with my brother and his dog. There are great views along the way. The lake is gorgeous, as is the view of the mountains. It snowed on and off on the way up, and the wind was pretty strong at the top. Definitely wear layers!

Hiked this trail yesterday and it was amazing. If you keep following the trail past where it stops up the other side of the mountain it has incredible views. Very strenuous. Fair warning!

Made it up to the second gate where it was closed for the season. No scratches or scrapes in a 2014 stock Grand Cherokee. Light snow but nothing inconvenient.

The trail was very rocky the whole way, but you can drive up if your car is lifted. I didn't mind the hike though - it wasn't too steep and it was gorgeous views the whole way. It was absolutely beautiful once you got up to the lake. My 8 month old Australian Shepherd came with us and she loved playing around in the water. Would do it again!
