Still quite snowy though pretty packed, didn't have too much trouble and wasn't wearing yak tracks or anything. Quite a few fallen trees currently across trail, but still a beautiful hike, pretty moderate not too steep. Dog Friendly! Though the trail is a little narrow so be careful with your dogs and other people. Not too crowded, though it was a Monday afternoon/evening. Only down side is you do have to pay to enter the canyon, other wise 5 out of 5.

Killer trail! Soft packed snow most of the way which made it a better workout. The views were awesome, well trafficked.

Great hike. Plenty of trees and plenty of views. Some places had a lot of ice, spikes would have been nice. Good length! Beginning seemed harder, the rest was easy to moderate.
Dogs are good for off leash on odd days, like the rest of the canyon. :)
