Nice loop for a quick hike. Spikes definitely necessary with the amount of Freeze/thaw and shaded areas. Not very family friendly currently.

Beautiful but icy especially where Meadowlark ascends to Mount Plymouth and/or turns back down the ravine to the trailhead. Spikes recommended if not required at this point in the season.

Chose the last warm day for a while to get up the mountain. Trail alternates between dry and dusty, wet, muddy, slushy snow, and ice—great variety! Avoid sneakers, spikes recommended

I love this hike during the summer, but went out today and it was 80% ice. It was very lovely on the way up, but the way down was extremely slippery. Take caution!!

Mix of very little ice, 50-50 packed snow/dirt, and 20% mud. Warm in the sun and cold in the shade from 12-1pm. Medium busy.

Definitely on the harder side of moderate if going up within a couple of weeks of snow. Its a heavily traveled trail, so the snow gets packed down into ice with a dusting of fluffy snow. The steeper parts of the trail become extremely slippery. Overall a wonderful hike, with most of the trail having wide paths (although there are some narrow spots)

The perfect hike. Not too far of a drive from Denver. Came at 11:30am on New Year’s Day, plenty of parking. Much of the trail is snow packed- not too icy today. We wore our spikes, but probably would have been okay without them.

We thought since it has been warm all weekend that there woudlnt be much ice remaining, but there are several very slippery sections. Regretted leaving the spikes at home!

I loved this but come prepared for ice on downgrades. Have the proper shoes and poles etc and you’ll like it otherwise you might get hurt lol - 12/26/2020
