It was a beautiful day to hike. Did this hike w/o crampons but can come in handy once you pass Loch. Here is snow but manageable. It’s definitely worth trying now! It looks great w/ snow w/ breathtaking views!

An easy stroll, especially if you have smaller kids. Lots of opportunities to scramble down to the river and just play around. Excellent views. Interesting rock formations.

Very beautiful views on this moderate trail. A great running trail, and lots of nice places to stop and have a picnic.

The views from May's Point are amazing! Nice, easy trail.

Very easy with some microspikes/crampons. A beautiful, wintery wonderland!

Pretty easy hike. The last 3/4 mile are the toughest and its not even that bad. I wish I could have seen this area before the fire, I bet it was gorgeous. The trail was clear except for a couple ice spots which are easy to maneuver around. The lake is frozen solid, still beautiful.

Lovely when you get to the lake . It's path up is quite steep and with added obstacle course of the rocks and rubble . I found it quite fun but I wouldn't be doing it with my 70 year old dad , so I wouldn't class it as easy . The lake is beautiful and then a further walk up to the Glacier just gives you that unreliable view of the peaks and the lake . Very beautiful .

Lovely little trail , very easy and flat . Too quick , it's one that you would like to walk for miles on . Through the forest and then unfortunately on the road for the last bit but again , it's quiet and the mountains in front of you the whole way down to the car park are awesome . Worth it even for the drive up there . Great trail for a quick dog walk .

I absolutely LOVED this trail I got a little out of puff a few times , just getting used to the altitude . Quite a bit of snow but manageable with boots . Getting up to the top and seeing the mine and the view is awesome . The dogs loved getting to the top and playing in some deeper snow . We carried on up a bit further where it really does get deep but it was fun , very quiet and very beautiful . Hardly met anyone on the trail which is surprising given the beauty of the views . Great for photographers

Fantastic trail . I'm not at my fittest but the climb was easy given the beautiful views . Yes, we started at the water tower and went left up to Tenderfoot Trail , the big electricity pylons are a bit of an eyesore amongst the surroundings . Carry on until you weave through the fence and then we went left Down the trail from there . It's beautiful and snowy weaving through the forest . It was so quiet and peaceful . I had on hiking boots and it was a little slippy underfoot but nothing too bad .
I would highly recommend this trail

So gorgeous. Made the extra 0.7 miles to the top of Hallett and it was definitely worth it! I was fine with just microspikes and the trail is a mix of ice, deeper snow, hard pack, and rock. Found a lone yaktrak contact me at rachelsaggau@gmail.com if you lost one!

This hike is difficult if you begin clockwise, instead of starting on the Sanitas Valley trail. Also almost everyone that I saw had their dog off-leash.

Beautiful trail, first half or so is fairly easy and then it becomes all uphill from there. So worth the walk, amazing views at the top.

love this trail

Great hike, even this time of year. Trails in some spots were snow packed and icy. Absolutely beautiful and hardly anyone here.

Enjoyed the 60degree blue sky day December 9,2017. Saw a Bald Eagle and several deer. Nice easy stroll for 8 plus miles!!
