For Mid November there were a few tricky spots with snowpack. Micro spikes would have been good but not necessary yet. Good views of the city. Definitely a moderate.

Beautiful day for a hike definitely worth checking out. The pictures don't do it justice

Great hike. Very moderate. Totally covered in snow (11/21). Did it in my boots and was fine, but some spikes would’ve been useful in a few spots. Worth heading to the lakes along the way. Fog and snow made for some incredibly stunning views of the mountains. Windy by the lake, but worth the cold! Would love to see it in the summer.

Pretty hike and saw no one else the entire time. That said I went counter clockwise and had wished I went clockwise. I hiked this alone and once I crossed the west and east confluence of beaver creek I began losing confidence in my ability to cross the stream lower down 3 more times where it would likely get deeper.

I went with my gut and turned back as I was alone , and if I jogged back the way I came I might make it back to my car before dark. Didn't want to risk injuring myself in the stream crossings and didn't want to risk getting stranded in wet clothes

so is this trail open?? lol

Awesome trail. Wish I had not lost my silver Patagonia down vest on it. If you find it, please call me 770-597-3711. I'll give you an award for being an awesome person.

plenty of snow on the trail for snowshoes. It was windy and lightly snowing at times. you do have to park at the visitor center which adds 2 miles I think. wasn't busy at all very peaceful.

Parking is available in town at the four way stop, don’t drive up Boulder St. there is no parking at the trailhead and there is no turnaround. You’ll be backing down the hill if you attemp it. Best to save yourself the 15 minutes and just park in town, the trail pops you out in town anyway.
Otherwise the trail is nice, not too busy and moderate in difficulty. I would never ride my mountain bike on this trail either direction, not sure why it’s suggested.
