I was the only one today. There’s no snow leading to the trailhead, but at mile 2.5 or so you will see snow as deep as a few feet as you near the end. The views are beautiful the entire way up. There’s plenty of snow melt streams to avoid and it’s muddy for sure, but if you’re up for some obstacles you’ll love it. The trail is hard to find around 2-miles in but the alltrails map kept me mostly on track. I had to turn around 1/2 mile near the end due to snow. My route got creative on the trek back.

Long drive on dirt roads coming in from south to reach either Trailhead. This is Segment 4 of Colorado Trail. We hiked it in reverse, going towards Denver from Longs Gulch. Only about 1500 ft gain going that way. The 6 mile meadow is wonderful but lacks shade. There are plenty of opportunities for backpackers to drop tent. Lots of water flows to refill from. Really nice hike.

No snow to trailhead. Moderate amount of snow on hike, as we were the first (and only people that day) to hike after a snow. Crucially, there's snow covering several turns/intersections that we ended up missing, so pathfinding was a pain on the way up. Descent was much easier. View up the valley is much better than from the pass itself.

There's still tons of snow about 8 miles in. Best to bring snowshoes and full snow gear when crossing Georgia Pass. We had to turn around due to the weather. Saw others turning around as well, don't take the snow lightly, you CAN get through it but bring proper boots, gloves, poles, rain pants, gators and whatever else you need to stay warm from the elements.

Road closed. I walked in a ways and it looks like the forest service is in the process of clearing fallen trees. Road seems to be in good condition otherwise. Makes for a nice hike.

Trail was great. Dry about 99% with only small batches of snow.

Great views on the top. It was a little bit tricky to find the road. There was snow on the road and we had to walk 15 min to the trailhead. There was a lot of snow still out there. Snowshoeing was the only way to get to the lake or on backcountry skis.

The road to the trail head is still under deep snow about 2.7 miles out! I’d check back in a month or so.

Easy trail overall. Only seen one guy on his way out as we were headed in. Road is still a bit snowy to get in so we had to walk about a 1/4 mile to the trail. The trail is very moderate some incline but not steep at all. the back side of the trail has some snow but only for about 1/4 mile nothing you need snowshoes or spikes for. the top of the trail is hard to distinguish weather it's the end or what but the trail doesnt lead to much.

Snowshoed about 6 miles round trip on 2/16. Gentle trail, good snow, nice views. Aspens don’t provide much of a windbreak in winter, but fortunately no wind this day.

went out along 810 west to the clearing where the bench is, and didn't need snowshoes until about 3/4 miles after that, going straight, instead up towards the electric poles, and after about 2.5 total miles from the lot, snowshoes were critical. got past knee deep breaking trail in new snow for about 1/4 mile past the 811a trail marker (still on 810) before we got tired and headed back. Poles recommended as it was almost hip deep in parts, and I may have fallen up to my armpits trying to break trail without them, before I got mine out to use :p

We arrived around 9am and the road up to the trailhead started out as just snowpacked. Once we passed the private residences the road was very snowy and only 1 other set of tire tracks up the road. My truck got partially stuck a couple times but we were able to get to a parking area just shy of the Hall Valley Campground. (I think this was the handcart campground parking area) We decided to snowshoe from there. We ended up snowshoeing the road up to the trailhead. We broke trail on the road all the way to the trailhead and decided to turn around and head back to the truck. This ended up being about a 3.4 mile roundtrip. The hike was nice as the road meanders next to the stream. Definitely going to be back in the summer when we can get up to the lake.

The road to the trail head is under deep snow. Other then my Jeep, tractors and snowmobiles were the only ones to the TH. Plenty of moose tracks. Please be safe.

Snow packed but just traction is ok. snowshoes are not necessary. Beautiful day. blue skies and no crowds. Easy to follow. We went about 3miles from Kenosha pass.

My dog and I trail ran here today and had the most wonderful time. Gorgeous leaves and views. We got to the trailhead at 7am and were the first ones there

Recorded only on the way back!
