It was more of a hard trail. Made it .6 miles in and turned back. Solid rocks up the trail. About another mile in there is snow covered in June. We saw beautiful views of our little bit in. It was fun and beautiful just more of a hard trail with the gravel. We did not have poles. I would recommend them.

My wife and I hiked to Skyline Lake and beyond from Stevens Pass. The trail to the lake was packed hard, so we didn't use snowshoes. The trail was rather steep but we didn't have problem. The trail from the lake to the rock garden was crusty so we used snowshoes. On the way down the snow on the tail became soft and slippery where the sun was beating down so we used Microspikes. I saw other people using skis, snowshoes, and spikes. The weather was sunny. The temperature was between 17 and 38 degrees F. It was a gorgeous day.

Snowshoe beyond the lake up to the rock ridge for views.

Not worth the effort. It's just a steep way up prepared for 4WDs, no views.

First time snow shoeing and first on trail so it was hard but we did It and loved it. Lots of people on the way down and the trail was easier after others were on it

It's a steep dirt road. Not very scenic. The lake at the end is cute.

This was a great first snowshoeing trip! The big climb was tough (basically 1000 ft climb all at once) but it was so worth it! What an amazing way to spend Christmas Day.

A little hard to find in the snow, but was worth the time. Only saw a handful of people and felt very secluded. Not many places to rest, due to the open nature of the trail. The snow was coming down so hard that the view was not visible.

Pretty easy hike to the lake. Better views of Glacier Peak and Stuart can be had with taking the ridge.
