Wow. As of 12/19/19 there is a dry ground at the trailhead and the more you go up the more winter it gets. I turned around about 3 quarters of the way through due to timing with the sun going down. I'm 5'8 and I didnt expect there to be snow up to my waist about halfway up. Theres a point where the only pair of footprints I saw turned around just about when the snow gets crazy and I went on for probably another mile. Within that mile I saw lynx and moose tracks. A very cool experience regardleds and I'll be back in the summer to see the lake. To anyone who has the impression this is a uphill hike with a lot of views along the way like I thought, it's not. You have to climb uphill in a forest setting for more then half the hike. Still amazing

Amazing trail. Good portion of forest in the beginning all for the view to get better and better as you keep walking toward the lake. I really liked how as of 11/18/2019 there was not a drop of snow on the ground at the beginning and it very slowly gets more and more snow covered until your walking on a snow covered trail and surrounded. The footprints stopped as soon as you get over the hill and a view of the lake before it starts going downhill, so that's also when I turned around. The whole trail gave me a vibe between Acadia, Yellowstone, and North Cascades national park all in one, if those parks were on steroids

Such an easy fun trail that allows a great view of the wetlands and the glacier!

The first bit of the trail up to where Falls Creek mine road splits off is well maintained. After that, it is more primitive and a bit rough in spots. Lots of roots to go over, I wouldn’t recommend a mountain bike. The last half of the trail when you get out of the spruce is very overgrown. Even with most of the plants dead for the winter, the trail disappears in a couple spot. I never worried about losing the trail, but seriously USFS, if by chance you read these, would it kill your budget to send a couple workers out there with a line trimmer a few times a year? Decent views in a few places farther up but mostly in the woods. The lake is worth the bushwhacking. I’ll most definitely be making the trip next year to camp up there for a few nights.

Biked up to lost lake! Trail conditions were good for biking, not too muddy. Would bring toe warmers next time!

A must do trail here in Alaska. We had been up on rainy days with low visibility but today was the exception- clear and cold.. the views were gorgeous! The trail is wide, moderate grade and breathtaking views at the top. We hit light snow around 2200 feet, but just a dusting. It did a great job at keeping the mud at bay. Bonus- plenty of frozen blueberries along the trail. No signs of bears, or people for that matter..

Beautiful. Well worth the work

56 year old female in decent shape. Did the hike in about 6 1/2 hours. Glad I had multiple layers. Snowed at the top with strong winds, low visibility. Cleared on way down, amazing views. Wore running shoes cuz it was all I had but were sufficient with terrain. Not nearly as rough as I expected. NOTE: orange markers for trail taken down 3 days ago.

Very steep in the trees. Hiking along the ridge is great and the lookout has amazing views. Trail splits a bit in places so watch for that.
