Can someone tell me if the road is open to out of county visitors now?

After the weekend weather, there were a few good snowy spots up at higher elevation, but nothing impossible for a capable 4x4 with clearance. However, a good sized tree came down across Cascade Crest between Saxon and Griffin (much closer to Griffin) that we were unable to clear, nor maneuver around. We had to backtrack clockwise on our departure. Great views with the snow, however!

One of the best hikes I’ve been on this season, I recommend doing it before all the snow melts. Hiked in hiking boots and did fine hiking through 3 ft of snow. It started snowing and got pretty cold, bring a jacket and some gloves. The views were amazing the whole hike.

Just got home from doing this hike. For me it’s the best of both worlds. Short drive and short hike and you’re at the lake. Stayed over one night at the campsite right below the first gate which will re-open 6/1. This is a fairly easy hike( for me) which was clear of snow about the first qtr and quickly changed to a trail with packed snow. The last qtr was post holing nightmare if you’re not prepared. But the view of the lake and the surrounding areas as they would say -it’s worth it! Loch Lomond is a lake sorta is fortified by a man made wall on one side where people can walk for a photo op. An elevation gain mentioned by AllTrails should be heeded if you’re not a regular hiker. Otherwise-happy trails!

Great trail and a true moderate level going up. However, on the way day it is very easy and relaxing. We were lucky enough to see wild horses and enjoyed the clear skies.

Headed up via Cascade Creek (counter clockwise) with our stock Jeep JL and it was fairly easy going till you get near Ute Road turn off. From there it’s a bit hairy with the Jeep bottoming out a few times. The road is bumpy and slow going so be prepared. All in all great time and great view.

It was my first time on this trail. I went up there in a stock 01 Pathfinder with a 2" lift. There were a couple spots where I needed a spotter. It was so much fun. great views. I definitely recommend going counterclockwise. Very little snow. a few puddles. Great trail!

Tried to mountain bike this trail but found it too rocky uphill and lot of felled trees on the way up and down. More of a workout than an enjoyable mtb ride

I think the map is wrong here. My research shows you're supposed to turn right at the 854ft mark on Virginia Canyon Road. I took Two Brothers Road instead which doesn't seem right. Stil was a great drive though.

What a great trail! We just picked up a 2020 jeep gladiator Rubicon a few days ago and were anxious to hit the trails. This was challenging without being too much for rookies and the view payoffs were amazing. We did not go all the way up but will definitely be back to venture further.

Hiked on 5/16/20. Conditions for the first half are fairly simple, classic rocky but defined trail with some good uphill climbing. The second half, after you cross the river, is mostly 3+ft deep snow. If you’ve got the proper equipment it should be no problem, and if you don’t, and don’t mind the risk of getting wet, pay attention to where you step and bring an extra pair of socks or 2! IMO, the hike is amazing. The views are stunning the whole way, but they do get better progressively. The challenge makes it more worthwhile!

We hit this trail at 9am. Great day beautiful blue skies. No one was out there let the dogs run loose. Great views.

Many parts of the trail are dry but the final mile or so is all deep deep snow so if you decide to come now wear snow shoes or at least hiking boots. I wore sneakers like a dummy but made it work but my feet and calfs are soaked. It was also slippery in sneakers too but I have a hiking stick so that helped.
