Hiked this on 7/4. Couldn't make it to trappers peak due to a late start. Was able to view the now thawing lake from a ridge. Plenty of snow here, poles and micro spikes would be helpful. Would recommend trying this a couple of weeks from now once the snow has completely melted.

Was able to drive to the trailhead in a Mazda but a high clearance vehicle would have been nice.

The trail cuts through the forest for the most part, nothing very exciting there. The last 3 miles are mostly uphill.
