Trail is like a small stream. Easy to hike through with hiking boots. Clear path all the way to High Loch Leven Lake. Beautiful views.

This trail is a lot of fun, beautiful throughout and the three lakes are gorgeous! We hiked it to Higher Loch Levens as a day hike. If you plan to hike it in the next few days though prepare to be wet. There's still a lot of snow, and it's melting, so parts of the trail basically become a stream. Also, keep a map handy or AllTrails open--because of the snow we got lost a few times, the trail wasn't easy to see, and we needed a map. Keep an eye on the rocks that line the trail or the totems that show you the way. To reach the last lake there's a passage that's a little tricky to find because of the snow, but follow the totem. If you're a beginner I don't recommend this hike at the moment, since the snow and water make it harder than it probably is in summer.

While the snow is not as bad currently (may 17, 2020) there is quite a bit of water on the trail especially past the tracks. Waterproof shoes are ideal, wool socks a must. All trails is very helpful, easy to lose the trail right now, though having hiked it many times before I could usually find it without all trails. I got off the trail before the snow projected hit will probably be worse in all regards shortly after this review. Main issues with snow I encountered was post holing if you stayed on the trail as the water carves it out on the trail so it's weak but walking along the edge was OK, icy enough you don't sink much but soft enough you can kick your steps in. After the snow melts though this is very enjoyable trail that is imo not super difficult if you know how to pace yourself.

Hiked up to the peak today and I was going to try the whole loop but snow drifts were too big. Great hike with plenty of sights to see. It was cool to watch the people climb the sheer cliffs.

After the railroad tracks the snow coverage is pretty deep, 2-3 feet in places. If you do this be comfortable getting wet as where trail isn’t covered in snow it is a running stream. You definitely need all trails to navigate. The lake at the end was worth the work.

Totally agree with Drew Carpenter - still an impressive amount of snow (see my photos for reference) as of 4/29/20 leading up to and past the railroad tracks. The trail is impossible to find after the tracks and the snow is unstable due to the melt so even with snowshoes this could be a treacherous go - I had a couple of close calls falling through unstable snow that made this a sketchy proposition. I definitely recommend waiting until June.

Trail isn't bad up to the railroad. Lost it a few times up to there. got about half way up past the railroad and lost the trail. Was falling through snow up to my waistline. Not recommend unless experienced and/or have snowshoes.

Awesome snow shoe hike. Plenty of slushy pow. This trail is steep so you have to be mindful of your steps. Much more mild a snow shoe hike than castle peak. Reasonable but still moderately strenuous. I found 1.5 L water to be appropriate if staring hydrated. Anything more is unnecessary added weight in my book.

Nice fresh snow! Pretty hard to stay on track with all the new snow. Get there early for better parking. Still a lot of skiers heading up the trail.

I went 3/1/20. I had a great time and the scenery was stunning. it had snowed, trail was nearly impossible to stay on, I was Checking AllTrails every 50’. I was also not well equipped for the winter conditions, and I knew it, so I cut the whole thing very short. I hope to be able to come back, however. I had more fun on this hike than I’ve had solo for a long time.

I’m sure it’d have been great if I weren’t so bad at way-finding around the snow. As can be seen in my recording. There’s no trail markers, really. Gotta have experience with snow for this trail in winter
