Excellent hike if you’re up for a little adventure & not afraid of heights. The river crossing was no problem (my feet didn’t get wet). At the 1st washed-out cement bridge, just go down the hill and cross on the man-made log bridge. Then go up river about 1/4 mile to find the second log bridge crossing. You won’t see a trail once you cross, but venture up the hill and you’ll find it. Only a few snow crossings at the top, but passable and likely melted entirely in 10 days or less. The views at Mildred are wonderful. It’s like venturing to Middle Earth / New Zealand. Definitely recommend for seasoned hikers.

Beautiful and nice trail to waterfall. Look for the cairns. Didn’t make it to Mildred Lake because the trail was washed out by rockslides and no easy way through. Waterfall is worth seeing!

Hardly any snow up to Mildred. Convict creek flowing pretty heavy and has a small crossing right now. The trail from Mildred to Dorothy had knee deep snow but was worth the views. Go earlier than later as it gets hot back here. 5/25/2020

Nice loop trail... no surprises to worry about throughout. Snow was melting so the creek waters were flowing into lake so beautifully! Took the kids ages 7-17 and it was a breeze for them.

Challenging but extremely satisfying hike. Worth every second because of the beautiful scenery. We didn’t make it to Dorothy, wish we had. We made it to Mildred. Had we known Dorothy was right around the corner, we would have pushed forward. We only encountered two other hikers when we were there, October 2019. Would recommended that you don’t do it alone. It’s a very hard trail for beginners.

Started the trail from the pine city trailhead off Lake Mary Road. Only a few snow patches too cross. May 17th 2020

When the snow doesn't melt, you may get lost.

Amazing family hike.

Great hike to the lake. No snow when we did it

Beautiful trail. Snow about 9000. Almost to switchbacks up to Valetine.

Snow is completely gone. Trail is good. Pretty crowded since it was a Saturday.

Sign says currently closed due to covid

The Crowley Columns are really cool to visit. As other people have noted, the Google maps directions are terrible. We finally parked on a single track dirt road and walked around a mile and a half to the start of the downloaded trail. So all in all, we walked over 8 miles. When we came back, we saw the others had made it all the way to the bluff overlooking the columns, which are right on the lake.

Looking great. Very little snow 3 trees down, but easy to navigate. Smiling.

Did it today & due to the COVID circumstances, downtown is not groomed and has MANY obstacles. Not enjoyable. Giving it a 4 star as these are not normal circumstances, just trying to share awareness

Easy 2.5 mile loop around the lake. Several places to pull off the trail to sit by the lake. One small water crossing but there are logs you can cross over. We walked around twice to get a longer walk.

Great little hike. Took the 3 kids and we made it up. we lost the trail a few times in the snow so we had to go around deep patches. They were tired but I enjoyed the struggle in the end. We didn’t have snowshoes or microspikes and were fine.

Easy hike, pretty flat the whole way. Perfect for families. No snow anywhere near the trail on April 28. So a few people swimming and it looked nice. 78° today.
