Spikes are a must. Light snow and ice till about 7550 elevation. Then snow pack ascending out of Cherry Canyon. Didn't need snowshoes, but they wouldn't hurt going further.

Icy and muddy near the bottom, snowy and gorgeous up top. Snow shoes could’ve come in handy around 7500 feet (ascending out of cherry canyon). Spikes are a must.

Opted for spikes, but could have used snowshoes. Loved finally hiking in snow this season.

icy snow in parts of the trail about half way. Trail is in good condition. About 45 degrees, sun and some wind on the Ridgeline.

Not for the faint of heart. Definitely the hardest hike I've done in Utah. Consistently steep throughout. The final scramble is not as sketchy as I expected, but even with minimal snow it became a lot more treacherous.

What. A. Trail. So many spectacular views to take in when you stop to suck in some air! I’m not sure which was worse: the up or the down. But, the summit experience and views were absolutely worth it. Honestly, the scramble wasn’t as bad as these reviews say it is. Stay low (south) and you’ll do just fine. I can see why it can be intimidating, but it wasn’t as bad as some of these reviews make it out to be. Just bring ample water, food, a good attitude and you’ll do great!

HikingGreat!RockyScramble

Great idea to start early, get the early section (slog) out of the way in the dark. Middle section is scenic and wooded, still reasonably easy to stay on trail, sweet cabin, and a small spring right next to the trail, barely a trickle. The alpine upper portion is as good as any in the central Wasatch - gorgeous garden of granite and diminishing pines; trail starts to get erratic, but also doesn't matter terribly except for the last approach towards the final ridge scramble. Actually dropped down into Bells for the return - be ready for exposed downclimbing, my bud said he won't do that again, I was having a great time. Didn't want to do Lone, because of hearing about the Jacob's Ladder approach. Despite the extra length of this one, the views along the way were superb and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Absolutely beautiful! Varied terrains and stunning views! Only saw a couple other hikers the whole day. My friend and I wondered why such a beautiful hike was so unpopulated. But we quickly realized it is because this hike is BRUTAL. Probably the hardest hike I’ve done on the Wasatch. Way harder than Timp or Olympus. But the rewards are pretty epic. Easy to get lost the last few miles and pretty technical climbing at the end.

HikingGreat!

Can you handle long and hard? If you can, this one is sure to leave you with a smile on your face. It was hot and sweaty so be prepared to be out of breath! I'm sure we'll all be walking funny for the next few days but we all left very content. I would definitely recommend, and will absolutely do it again even though it's tough to beat that first time.

HikingNo shadeOff trail

Trail is easy to follow up to the cabin, but between there and the cirque it can be difficult to follow. First 4.5 miles gains altitude really quick so be prepared - in the range of 750 ft/mile. That part is exposed so bring water or a filter bottle, especially for the return. Reasonable amount of scrambling toward the top. Did Lone as a Boy Scout 40 years ago and hated it. Not much love this time around either.

made it to water before heading back. I am a novice hiker and it was hard but rewarding. I did not run out of water, went through about 3 of 6 quarts before going back.

I am to old, to slow, and started to late to finish today. The upper part of the trail gets into a ponderosa pine forest. It's like another world.

The trail is great for the first five or 6 miles, then it starts to get really hard to keep track of. I managed to get lost on the way there and the way back. If I wouldn’t have had my phone and GPS on me I might not have made it back on foot.

The trail was very difficult to find towards the top. Also the trail was very gravelly and slippery. The log cabin was really cool though.
