Trail was packed down and easy to hike. Wore spikes just in case but probably didn’t need them.

Great!

Quick out and back with plenty of space at Rainbow Lake to take in nature or to meditate. Ascent on the way to the lake and an easier hike back with a decent. The middle/beginning section of wooden paths in the middle was a little difficult with social distancing. Overall a beautiful and family friendly hike. Trail was snow covered and easy to manage.

It was so busy. It was really icey and muddy. So many trees are falling down and they had piles off the trail that they cut. Lake was pretty but it was frozen. I couldn’t get many good pictures.
