SnowshoeingSnow

this is the snowshoe (uphill travel) route up to Twin Lakes from Brighton, starts just to the right of the Milly Express lift, just stay to the right next to the boundary fencing and you'll be good. quite steep in many places even with good crampons on your snowshoes, great workout!

HikingClosed

My wife and I waited at least 1 hr in Brighton Ski resort Traffic only to find out the trail is closed! Apparently it is always closed during the winter because of avalanches. There is a nordic center right by Brighton that will charge $8 a person to walk around Silver lake, so we turned around and did lake blanche instead.

With no recent snowfall, trail was hard packed most of the way. Micro spikes or similar traction devices worked well. There was no need for snowshoes. Beautiful weather and blue skies.

Great trail year round. I went in August and last week. Very cool to see the lake with and without snow.

Great trail. We went snowshoeing. Lots of snow up there so I wouldn’t recommend hiking boots right now. The lake is frozen over and looks beautiful. Would highly recommend.

Beautiful! This hike starts on the boardwalk by Silver Lake and then ascends the mountain with stunning views. Some light snow on the upper trail but not bad and still passable. Well worth it!

Outstanding loop. We chose to go around the upper lake and it was worth it. Some steep parts getting around the lake but great view. You can shorten the hike by cutting in front of the dam. On the way back down we heard water just past the upper dam and left the trail and went to the left a bit. Nice to see the water cascading down the mountain and some great photos. Worth it and we would do it again!

Really beautiful lake. A good chunk of the trail is in an old stream bed, so very rocky. Great climb, just be aware.

Fun trail, but didn’t like that it started on the extremely busy Silver Lake boardwalk loop
