this trail was a blast! came up for the Set them Free fundraiser 2017 and had a blast! I just put gears and lockers in my TJ and definitely put them to use! my jeep is on 4" with 35s though we did have a guy on 3" with 33s and open diffs and still did good!
one of the best I've done and definitely coming back!
but this time with rock sliders so I can add some of the harder obstacles to my list like the rock pile.

the gate was closed and this was still one of the best views i've ever seen. we were there at sunset and it was unbelievable. couple fun obstacles to mess around on if you choose to do so, totally avoidable if not. if you'd like to see a video of the run i have one up at:

With the threat of snow we decided to give this a go. The early stages were steep with some switchbacks but it evened out, lulling us into a false sense of security! As we progressed further up, past some of the other trails, the snow started falling. As we got higher it got deeper until the last mile it was up to our knees! We persevered, mainly because we were following a trail runner's footsteps! We had seen him heading out as we did, so we thought if he could run it, we could surely walk it! However, he must be superhuman, or at least a world class athlete, as we found the last couple of miles horrific! The snow was getting deeper, and we had to take it in turns to lead! The wind was blowing the snow around and visibility was poor! We got to the lake and it was frozen with very little to see!!!! However, we felt a great sense of achievement! Needless to say we racticalky romped back down trail taking great delight as the snow got lighter. We were frightened half to death by 2 massive claps of thunder, and we were spurred on by the ever darkening sky!
We left car about 9.30am and got back there about 4pm- we did take a lot of breaks and selfies!
I can only imagine this is spectacular in the warmer weather, we did "enjoy" it though!! We don't often see snow as white, crisp, clean and deep as this so it was a great experience!

Easy to the lake, windy and icy up the glacier. Gorgeous views at the top.
