My wife and I hiked to Beckler Peak. The weather was sunny and the temperature was between 63 F and 80 F. It was a beautiful day to hike to the summit with great 360 degree view. There were still some snow patches on the trail, which made route finding skill necessary. The road to the trailhead is 7 miles long from the highway 2. It is a single lane dirt road and has potholes but you can drive around most of them. When we arrived at the trailhead at 11 am there were three cars. There is a vault toilet at the trailhead.

As stated in other reviews, the snow makes it difficult to find the switchbacks so the best choice is to shoot straight to the top. You may second guess yourself on the way up but go for it, the views are breathtaking!

Snow pack made it the best hike so far this year.

As Emily mentions in her report from a week ago, the trail is difficult to find in the snow, and we also scrambled straight up (and down) where the switchbacks would have been. Breathtaking views await up top though!

This trail was absolutely amazing. We got to the trail head around 08:00 and there were five cars in the parking lot. Upon hiking about two miles the trail becomes hard to find. Don't be confused and wonder around trying to find a definite trail because there isn't one this time of year. We basically went straight up where there should have been switchbacks. Eventually everyone miraculously finds the trail that leads to the summit. Despite the snow being super skill it was amazing. The views were magnificent! On the way down there is a trail for a while, but then people split off going wherever they think is the best. In some spots it was great for sliding down on your rear as if you are sledding! The views were great and the times were fun. I recommend this hike. Get stoked for the 360 views.

The snow amplified the beauty for this hike. It was serene and incredible. Could not see much while at the peak due to heavy cloud coverage but there is rewarding scenery buried in the trees. Great hike.

Awesome hike. There was about a foot of snow on the ground and it started snowing while we were on the top, but we had just the right visibility before the clouds started to settle around the peak.

I definitely recommend shoes geared more towards snow and better traction. The shoes I had were not even slightly water proof- but the hike was definitely worth it.
