Hiked this yesterday. Loved it!! Counted 59 waterfalls. We crossed a few snow spots with definite tracks to put your feet in. Emerald Lake was gorgeous but chilly because of the wind. Take a jacket and plenty of water and food. Snow fields past the lake make it hard to go further on to the top of Timp.

Made it four miles, after that it was just pure snow with no tracks. Incredible views. Few more weeks to thaw out!

Starter early and had the trail to ourselves as usual. Broke trail in fresh snow all morning until we turned around at about 2.8 miles. The snow depth was anywhere from 4 inch to mid thigh deep in the drifts. It was amazing. Views are incredible. Fresh power, solitude, red sunrise to start the day and great company. It doesn't get any better than this

Awesome trail! Put my three year old in the osprey and hiked to Emerald Lake. My body is shot but it was totally worth it. Three waterfalls, ice patches, green fields, mountain goats, and a beautiful lake waiting for you at the top. Hike is not too dangerous. Just requires a LOT of effort and will power. Especially with kids on your back. If you're afraid of the ice patches and walking over them, we walked around them just fine today without polls. Weather was great and the mountain goats are worth to look. They swam very cool with humans up there. Don't mess with them and they won't mess with you. They walked within 15 yards of us. It's late July and there is certainly still ice on the path. Be aware and respect the ice I'd suggest.
