One of my favorite hikes.

There's still quite a bit of snow. The road to the trailhead is closed another couple of weeks. We did get very close to Lake Catherine but the snow stopped us sadly. We plan to return in a few weeks where it will be easier to get too. I'd give it a higher rating if we'd have been able to see it. Still ended up with a decent hike.

I felt like singing sound of music the whole time. And the wildflowers. ❤️ this hike has my heart.

Good trail for beginners. Great views of surrounding area. Went beyond Lake Catherine to Sunset peak. Hiked through the snow and reached around 10,500. Nice trip back to car.
