Great hike! Trail is clear, dry, snow from the saddle up to the peak- used my spikes there. Beautiful! Am excited to do it again!

Epic views!!! 4 false peaks so be prepared to keep climbing. Totally worth it!!!

May 19, we never made it to the summit as there was lots of deep wet snow on the trail. Sinking past our knees. Beautiful area. Weather was sunny and in the 50s.

Super easy quick trail. Still a bit of snow 5/20 but manageable without cleats. Lovely and windy. Lots of dog poop- no trash cans. Outhouses appear open for business too.

Awesome views! Didn’t get all the way to the top because there is still a lot of snow but some other people were climbing up so it’s doable if you are up for the challenge. Look out on the first 1/4 mile, dog poop is everywhere.

Still a little snow and mud, and too early for the ubiquitous flag pic, but a great hike overall.

Access is kind of restricted. might be able to park 2 cars there without bothering the residential folks. But trail is steep and muddy in May when I just went up. Coming back down was slick! But overall, it's a leg work out and a half. Beautiful hike though!

Fun. Bring your legs for the first half, all up hill. Some areas with heavy roots , but it's a trail through the trees.

We attempted this yesterday. Got a shuttle from Downtown bikes. Only one person in the group made it. Snow covered the mountain. Don't attempt unless you are comfortably walking through snow and know this track. Beautiful area to walk around, there are other tracks nearby and great views.

great condition just a couple of spots with the remains of a puddle, easy to dodge though. Fun!

Starts out as a nice trail, then turned into a walk thru an industrial area with homeless people sleeping on the benches.

My friends and I went backpacking May 14th-15th. The trail was a little bit muddy at the beginning. Near the lakes there was a lot of snow that covered the path. We couldn’t find the path and often had to post hole through the snow. Bring an extra pair of shoes or just extra socks because your shoes will get muddy. It wasn’t too windy or too cold during the night. We stayed warm and dry through the night. The only wildlife we saw were 52 Dall sheep on the mountainside. We saw the tracks of a moose that had followed us out, but didn’t see the moose. We didn’t do the loop trail. We went to the left of the mountain and through the valley. It was around 5.5 miles to the lake making it 11 miles round trip.

It was good! Trail was dry, clear. Enjoyable!

Did this for offsite PT this morning and it was a lot of fun. I don’t recommend taking dogs because the three that came along nearly tumbled to their deaths. Wife got it all on GoPro

Saw brown bear and 2 cub tracks on the way to Gray Lake coming down from the mountain side . Appeared to be coming out of hibernation. Turned around as fresh tracks . Snow slippery and crampons very useful.

We attempted this with kids in packs today and turned around after the first few sections of snow at the start. Far too slippery. Without kids, and with poles, you could do this and enjoy yourself. The snow is significant enough to wait a few weeks if that’s not something you want to deal with.

Hiked to the lakes on 11 May. First half of the trail was mostly dry with some marshy spots on the back half of the middle fork trail. After making the turn East for the lakes, the trail was about 1/4 snow with typical post hiking in the afternoon warmth. Couldn’t find any good spots to camp overnight near the lakes since it was windy, snowing lightly, and completely exposed. Doubled back and found a spot amongst the trees near a sinkhole. Saw lots of moose tracks and some bear tracks on the trail near our site the next morning. Overall, the hike has incredible views, not packed with other hikers but saw some with fur friends, and you’ll probably soak your feet right now in the mud and snow. Would definitely do this hike again!

Posthole the whole way up. Great view

5/9/19 — Great trail, only a small snow/ice patch that’s easy to work through. Windy at the peak but beautiful views. Took under two hours up & back. Definitely recommend!

Hiked this on 10May19. The trail is pretty muddy with significant snow. Waterproof boots will be very useful. The view was amazing. We didn’t see anyone else on this trail but plenty headed to Flat top. The challenging part was the high incline and wind. There are some parts that are pretty shady. Don’t recommend going out there unprepared.
