Lots of snow covering the trail and wildlife tracks. The road driving to the trailhead is not great so make sure you have a good vehicle to clear the big snow dips/potholes. Beautiful and quiet hike

Nice short trail with a spectacular view at the top. Pretty much all switchbacks. Went 3/21 and it was snowpacked the entire trail. Snow spikes are definitely a need. A nice bench about halfway and at the top to really soak in the views.

great hike today. beautiful weather. numerous big trees down on trail so had some climbing. great day

Great trail right now. Didn't see a single person the entire time. Spikes are a must since the whole trail is snow. Once you get above treeline, the actual trail kind of disappears, so pick a set of tracks and follow them.

Went yesterday with my husband. It was incredibly quiet, just what we needed. You will absolutely need spikes and once you get out of tree level we would definitely suggest snow shoes. With that being said we did not have any and still had a great time. The trail is very hard to find once you hit the valley near the top. We got a little lost and I think we went up to the top through the opposite side, but still a great hike. Parking was very tricky! The road is fine until the last mile. Just park down below at the designated spots and walk to the trail head.

Aired down and disconnected sway bars only to find that the gate was closed at entrance to trail on 101. Not sure why it was closed, as far as I know the trail is open rear round.

Trail was packed down, less so as you ascended, came nowhere near doing the entire trail. It was easily navigable with micro-spikes and also easy to post-hole just off the trail. Both the dog and I had a great time with only two other hikers seen on a Friday March morning.

like the person below, I too got stuck on the road between the campground and the TH, in an AWD Rav 4. its deceiving, it looks doable at first and increasingly gets higher in the center and thats rock hard consolidated snow. unless you ride high and have offroad capabilities, dont drive it.

Nice, sunny Winter Saturday. Got there at 9:00 and first in parking lot and on trail. Not a Winter-popular trail, apparently, because we were the first to trail break since last week's snow. Snow shoes best. Spikes will do if you like the exercise of trail breaking. Yaks won't help much. About a mile in - at the fork for Payne (left) or Brookside (right) the trail is mostly lost in snow and there is no signage. Use your Spidey Senses for another 200 yards or so to find them. (We only found Brookside up a bit and went that way for a while, but hard slugging). Getting There: Follow AllTrails directions, not Google. If coming from Denver, take the first (immediate) left after the Conoco gas station; then the left fork about a 1/2 mile up the road (dirt). There is a small parking lot off the road and at the trailhead.

This trail is such a surprise when you get to the top! Super easy, a bit icy, so poles or spikes are helpful. The view is amazingly breathtaking!!

If you want to drive all the way to the trail head, it is not possible as I found out today. Have a Subaru Outback and got stuck halfway down the road from the campground where the road splits. Park atthe campground sign/board and walk from there. Lesson learned

Had the place to myself and my pups! Snowshoes recommended, as I was limited in distance with just microspikes.

Spikes on your tennis shoes is a must, still a lot of snow and ice. A walking stick would have been ideal for the way down but go slow if didn't bring yours.

Found micro spikes left on the trail on 1/26/20. Message me if you think they may be yours.

Loved this trail! Nice little hike with an amazing view at the top! My husband and I made it to the top fine but coming down, mini spikes or trekking poles would have helped. We slipped a few times from the snow on the trail being packed down to ice.

Really nice snowy hike. Bet it'd be beautiful in the fall with all the aspens. Were only a couple cars at the trailhead and I didn't see anyone else the entire hike. The south part of the Rosalie trail was a little complicated as the snow wasn't as packed, probably what caused me to lose one of my yak trax Overall great hike

Trail blazed in my bfs 4WD Toyota Tacoma. It took us just shy of 4hrs. We are riding with stock tires so about halfway due to snow and steepness, we put chains on the front tires. No problems at all! Nice scenery of Aspens, forest and a couple openings of Mountainous backdrops.
