We snowshoed this a couple days after Christmas. Moderate traffic and plenty of snow. Views are worth the incline! Skiers and other hikers were great on the trails as well. Perfect for dogs and a quick hike.

Got up to the hut today. The first half mile is well-packed snow and it's ideal for snowshoeing. After that the trail is mostly fluffy powder and I sank in about a foot in a number of steps. It is easy to lose the trail and be sidetracked by all the new paths created by skiers. The view from the Broome Hut is worth the trek although there was some pretty serious wind up there today.

Plenty of smaller trails well labeled to explore! Went hiking since there was low snow in mid December and the paths were well traveled. Perfect for cross country skiing. Easy inclines, beautiful views, and you can go as far as you'd like!

There was low snow when we visited in mid December so we just booted the whole way. A little harder closer to the top, but still beautiful!

It was spring at the start and snow pack at top. But I loved it

A winter wonderland. I took the off-road route here and decided to go off the main trail a bit. Climbed the rocks that appeared once you are through the thick of the forest and was able to get to the top - terrific 360 views. I had snow boots on and hiked with really no problem (a little slick sometimes) but there were plenty of people snowshoeing and a few skiers as well. Will definitely be going back in the summer.

Went up there today and the trail is now closed for the season! You can walk past the barrier up to the actual trailhead if you want but it's a good 10 miles to the trailhead.

This is a beautiful hike! it was my first time backpacking with my husband, and we brought our dog. the scenery is beautiful and the hike is not too strenuous if you are in decent shape. I have chronic pain and back problems, so I wasn't sure how well I would do. but we kept pace with other active hikers just fine. The last mile is the most exhausting, as it is steeper than the rest, so pace yourself.
my only complaint is that many people had their dogs off leash. Some of them were behaved, but most of these off-leash dogs were getting up in my face or aggressive with my dog. I know your pup loves to run around, mine does too, but please keep your dogs leashed!

Overall, an excellent hike and several good camping spots.

Great trail for kids. Took my 4 year old on this hike and he had no problem at all.

Beautiful views.

Completed on 10.22.17 so it was a snow hike. Didn’t use crampons, micro spikes, or snowshoes though. Snow was packed down. Very little ice and easy to avoid. View at the top is insane. Make you pass the first lake and climb up to that baby ridge so you make it to heart lake. Heart lake isn’t as pretty but that view looking down on Rogers lake is spectacular. Loved it!! Looks like it has lots of aspens so a good fall hike. And plenty of meadows for wildflowers :)

Good trail for sightseeing and mild off-roading. I found some great mud puddles up there if that’s what you’re looking for. Jeep did great up there.

super cute trail and many different ways you can venture off!

A great trail to take your pup on. So much fun after a snow day.

Really beautiful trail. rating is accurate. uphill steeply at least 3/4 of the way and the last 1.75 miles are the biggest climb. aits worth it at the top though, especially when the fall colors are at their peak.

I loved this hike and not too difficult, it was perfect an overnight, but would be nice for a day-hike too. The payoff of Heart lake is amazing. I suggest to carry on the trail up towards the pass to get some incredible views above treeline. Every trail from the Mofat Tunnel trailhead is worth it.

Great easy hike for a family with younger kids. We took our 4 year old and 7 month old (in carrier) and enjoyed an easy first hike for the toddler. Parts are board walks and crosses a small stream several times. Several benches to sit down if needed along the way.

For a flatlander struggling with mountain sickness, this was a difficult hike. Steep going up, just take breaks. Regardless of AMS making the hike a lot harder than it should have been, this was a wonderful trip. We did over 4 miles, went past the hut. The views are beautiful. You get the alpine valley with the waterfall and stream and wildflowers in addition to the beautiful surrounding mountains. Windy up top so pack accordingly. Reasonably crowded on a Sunday afternoon, we still had many moments of solitude on the trail. Dogs loved it. Water sources abound with the creeks.

Great hike and views. Arrive early to get the best spots around one of the two lakes. Hammocks are quite popular and worth bringing along.

This is a lovely little moderate hike in the woods. We clocked it at about 7.6 miles all in starting from the lower parking lot (you can skip this and drive up the forest road to the actual trailhead). Gradually uphill the whole time but nothing too strenuous. A few scenic meadows and views of the CD were the nicest parts. The tail end is in dense muddy forest and the trail is a mess. Small lovely waterfall at the end of the trail. Not very crowded saw maybe 10 people the whole time on a Friday afternoon. Close to town which is great! Road noise dissipates very quickly and you are surrounded by woods.
