We did this trail as part of a loop (we hiked up Medicine Bow trail to the summit and then took the Lakes Trail back down to the parking lot). It was a great hike, very scenic but unless you’re prepared for hiking in snow and strong, strong winds then I would recommend doing only the Lake Trails part of the trail up and down. Even the Lake Trail has some snow on it, but it’s hard packed and easy to walk on. Some icy sections but overall a walk in the park compared to the other loop section we did! Hiked on October 26th
