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.

10/23. Amazing trail, well maintained.
Lots of snow, which made it very challenging, but worth it every step, and every slide. Took me 3 hours on the way up, 50 minutes on the way down.
The summit is wide open, great view, but the wind... be prepared!

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 :)
