Great hike to start the season. I definitely suggest a high clearance vehicle to make it to the TH. Still lots of snow near the top, and highly suggest micro spikes and trekking poles, especially when crossing the make shift bridge. Water is raging! We abandoned trail and decided to follow other steps that went straight up. We camped on the other side of the lake, but again, highly recommend micro-spikes and poles when traversing the steep side of the lake. Happy hiking!

Such a beautiful hike! Was able to make it to the second lake with just crampons. Definitely gets a little technical with the snow and steep sides on the way to the second lake but I would still recommend it!

Lots of snow still! Once you get up to rock field and where you cross creek, the deep snow begins! May be awhile before trail is exposed. Difficult to find trail so went cross country straight up. Creek is also raging. Crossing with makeshift bridge could be challenge for some. Actually snowed on top. My teenager made it for first hike of the year.

Made it within a mile of the lake, without snow shoes and all the gear. The snow became super deep and very steep so had to turn around. Recommend some sort of gear if you want to make it the rest of the way. Aside from that, going to wait a bit to try again.

Lake is still frozen up there. Was able to go without spikes or snow shoes. At the top snow gets up to your shoes. Beautiful view at the top! Had fun glisading parts of the mountain.

Wonderful trail, with all different kinds of scenery. The second lake is definitely worth the hike. The view of the colosseum like mountains peaks are incredible. I highly suggest this hike! If you have any thoughts of pushing to summit the peaks above the lakes... be sure to plan head!

We made it up to Stevens Lake, but it was quite sketchy at parts and we slid off the trail multiple times. Not recommended at this time.

This was very difficult! We got about 2 hours up and didn’t even make it to the first lake and it just kept going up so we decided to turn around. In all it took 3 hours and 15 minutes. Snowshoes and poles are a must! Also road was snowed out a mile to the trail head so that added and extra 1.5 miles maybe. Definitely was beautiful but hiking straight up for two hours was very hard! We’ll have to try it again in the spring!

Wonderful trail. Have hiked this in the winter on snowshoes and have hiked it in the summer; camping near the lower lake. The hike to the top of the peak is also beautiful.

It was an absolutely beautiful day to be in the mountain. we hit this today (11/23/19) before the snow is supposed to fall. icy, a little dangerous, but overall not bad at all. it was well worth it. the ice on the waterfalls and lake were absolutely breathtaking.

Beautiful hike

Hiked most of the way to the lower lake (October 18) but unfortunately there’s so much snow it was really hard to see the trail and the snow just got too deep and it started snowing heavy, but even where I ended up the views were gorgeous, also watch out the trails randomly bears off an existing trail and was hard to see in the snow, you can see the location in my recording

9.22.19 Well worth making the extra climb to the upper lake! Go around the right side of the lake to find the trail, it’s pretty well hidden but can be found just before the second easily accessible outcropping of rock on the lake. Stunning views and SO pretty with the fall colors right now. Ran into a bull moose and a deer but both cleared out once I started softly speaking. Haven’t done this myself but saw other hikers climb the ridge between upper stevens lake and lone lake- they said it was worth the hike! Will do next time

Approximately 3 1/2 hours to complete round trip to the lake and back. The hardest part is the scramble over the shale rock for approximately 0.25 miles. Last half mile steep uphill climb but well worth the work! Beautiful clear clean pristine Mountain Lake.
