This is a tough winter hike, we used Yaks but many wore snowshoes and snow pants. The views are rewarding, I'm sure even more so in Spring.

Definitely enjoyed this hike!

The drive in was spectacular and you’ll most definitely need to park at the 0.7 mile marker before the trailhead. There’s no driving up that road even with an AWD; I have a subi and another guy had a monster Jeep with huge snow tires and couldn’t drive up. No worries; it’ll just add some extra distance on the hike!

The weather was perfect today! The snow is thick but it’s not too icy so you should be fine with some good hiking boots! Spikes are definite must on some of the inclines though!

The scenery was great and I’d highly recommend this hike to anyone!

Awesome hike that covers a lot of "wants" streams, forest, lake, 4x4 optional drive to get to the trail head and proximity to Denver. Will be bringing friends to do again!

Beautiful views for the entire hike once you pass the first lake. Nice moderate trail. Recommend four wheel drive to get all the way to the trail head but you can park at the bottom and walk the 1/2 mile up the access road to the trailhead (and that ended up being the hardest part of the hike!).

Great moderate hike with a nice payoff if terraced lakes and a great view. Highly recommended.

Gorgeous views throughout the hike. Went on June 25 and there was still some snow through the trial. The micro spikes definitely came in handy but many people were fine without them too.
