This is a great hike in the right season with the right conditions. Right now, there are fallen trees all over the trail for the first 2 miles. At 2 miles, there's snow 2+ feet deep with creeks running underneath. It's also easy to get lost on the way down because of the snow.

Highly recommend skipping this trail until June!

I hiked this trail yesterday with a friend. There's quite a bit of snow on the last half of the trail. We brought snow shoes but didn't need them though because it was packed down. The lake is still covered in a lot snow, but looks so pretty this time of year. There's also a lot of trees down on the first half of the trail from the winter. Great hike though!!

We took the trail to the split to Lake Watanga. The first mile is quite a climb, then it becomes easier, until the last mile to the lake. Several bridges are out, and have been replace with whatever logs people could find.
