love this place! perfect for bringing the kids of all ages. from strollers to kids on the run. well marked and beautiful.

I must say that hiking this trail in the snow proved to be very difficult, even with micro spikes. My wife and I made it all the way to the lake, but that was after a mile of knee deep snow. Needless to say, this hike is awesome. spectacular views and pretty rugged. I would like to hike it in the summer without the snow!

Do this hike in the summer then come back and do it in the winter, it’s so amazing to see the change in the terrain. Such an amazing hike I recommend it to everyone

Hiked on 1/18. Guanella pass rd closed at silver lake trailhead. Nice uphill all the way to the lakes- bring your skis or a sled to ride the all the way back down to the parking lot!!

Great trail for snowshoeing. It was easy to follow even during a snowstorm.

A quick loop that my dog loves to do!

A great hike for a beautiful winter day. Trails go through both open mildly hilly woodlands and flatter prairie-ish areas. Trails nicely groomed for cross-country skiing.

If I wanted to Do this Hike THIS weekend (Jan 19) Around 10:30am, wondering if I'd need snowshoes. Has anyone hiked it in the past couple of days?
Thanks!

A beautiful, relatively flat trail. I hiked without skis or snow shoes. Paths are worn enough. The loop shown isn’t totally navigable this time of year. I had to double back to find a used path across the river. Still a good trail!

One of the most beautiful sights these eyes have ever seen.

I wouldn’t call this a trail - more like a sidewalk that is completely paved. It skirts the perimeter of a densely populated residential area and some commercial (shops-restaurants) buildings. A portion of it borders Swaner preserve. Used heavily by Mountain Bikes.

Not remote, easy, flat, wide, multi use, well maintained trail. Heavily traveled with friendly folk. Walk to shops and restaurants or connect with trails in Lower Utah Olympic Park for more steps.

Awesome hike. Definitely a workout. A lot of ice. Micro spikes work well. Some mud

I’ll be back! Good hike that wore my dog out! Look forward to fishing the lake when ice melts.

Great winter hike with view of keystone resort that can be seen from the mine! We brought the dog and was an easy hike for all!

Took this hike with my 4 and 7-year-old as their first snowshoe hike. They loved it! We didn’t really need snowshoes when we went (mid-December) as the trail was packed down good but they still loved it. The trail is even better on a clear day. The fog ceiling was very low and we couldn’t see much, at the end of the hike we made it back to the frontside of the pond and the fog had lifted. We loved this hike!

very enjoyable
