Walked the trail toward the false summit. We turned back before the ridge line that leads to the actual summit because we didn’t have floatation and the trail was covered by snow at a very steep section heading down the south slope. It was really fun hiking.

Great hike today. I used my snowshoes most of the way except for summiting the mountain. A few people only had sneakers and they postholed most of the way. Really slushy snow, with a 3-4 foot base in most areas. Great views at the top.

The views are really nice but this "trail" is basically a road. There was some cloud cover today, but this trail is not shaded. Not too easy, not too hard.

A little muddy/ puddles across the trail due to heavy rain last night. Beautiful ponds and waterfall. There is also a cave with water at the top of the loop right before you head back down.

We parked at Hoosier Pass and the trailhead is to the right of the info signs. This was a wonderful kid-friendly hike. We took all four kiddos (7, 10, 12 and a 1 yr old in a carrier) up the left side of the loop and then up to the top. That little grassy "summit" is not part of the trail listed here, but it provides lovey views both north and south from the Continental Divide. We then came back down the small "ridge" and joined up with the loop below. The kids loved getting to walk right by some snow still on the ground. We would definitely hike it again!

Great, moderate hike with fantastic scenery - the only downfall is your trail is an old mining road. We took the short path to the lake and the direction we chose meant a steep incline to the top of a ridge.

Had a great time with my husband and two kids. 4 year old was able to walk and play most of the way until the steeper incline towards the top of the ridge. Beautiful stream and lake along the way. And loved all the different wildflowers. Great way to start the day !
