Great for a short hike with a beautiful view at the end! Trail was hard packed snow making it just fine to wear my trail runners. Pups enjoyed the hike as well.

Breezy at the lake this morning. Wind was howling down the glacier, bbbrrrrr

It is prettier in the summer when it was all green. The lake was frozen and people were ice fishing. Still accessible without snow shoes. My friends were wearing tennis shoes.

Good hike. Very short. Me and the group had to use clamp ons for our shoes because of how slippery it was. Not all parts were bad just some. We saw some people doing it in sneakers, but we're going very slow and slipping a lot.

This is a great hike for those looking for beautiful scenery without having to exhaust yourself for the view. I'm by no means an expert hiker and definitely a novice and I really enjoyed this trail.
