Just a "ditto" on Mr. Whyte's comment below: we thought we were doing an Easy rated, 4.6 mile loop when instead we hiked/sloshed pretty sharply upward for over 3 1/2 miles. One stronger, faster member of our group went ahead to figure out where the "loop" started descending. She called to say it just continued to ascend and the snow was deeper and no end to the ascending in sight. We turned around and hiked back to the trailhead. Didn't really see any alternatives, however, to a different, shorter, loop hike.
Also, the hike offered little in the way of views...just pine trees. Still great to be out on the trail, though.

I took this trail for my first snowshoeing adventure. It was easy and had wonderful views!

Went with a few friends and some dogs! Great trail, a little steep in parts. Watched some skiers from the top of the mountain.

I've hiked this trail a few times. Its an awesome area, there are a few other trail junctions along the way that are worth checking out as well. In winter Rogers Pass trail is usually pretty easy to follow until you get up by Rogers Peak Lake and then anything goes, most tracks aren't going to be on the trail, and some of them just go off in random directions. Definitely recommend bringing GPS and topo map.

Definitely needed snowshoes during the winter. People were skiing down from the top, looked so fun! It was a great trail and I can't wait to go back with the right gear.
