AMAZING. One of my favorite hikes EVER. Everybody should do this hike at least once before they die.

1-13-2020 cold but beautiful day! Fresh snow along the trail. I would recommend wearing cleats / tracks as there is ice under the snow.

Not a good place to park right at the trail head. We parked just around the next turn at the pull out, then hiked up and over the hill to catch the trail. GREAT powder for snowshoeing First part of the hike recently walked, so nice and easy. At the Y, we forged through about 1/3 of the upper part of the loop, then got tired and cruised through the trees straight down the hill to meet the bottom part of the trail. Headed ‘backwards’ on it to get to Ponderosa Outlook and sit for a few minutes. About 2.5-3 hrs outside, including dinking around with photos and a snack break.

Hiked up to the springs this morning. The last part of the trail is steep with some icy and snowy spots, so be careful and consider using crampons. The hot springs are spectacular, and the views are wonderful during the entire hike.

great time, but I don't recommend in snowy weather. turned back when we lost site of trail. I know we are surrounded by civilization but it no need to get caught in heavy snow that's coming in a an hour or so.

Phone read 5.5m in 2:05:12 with 1729ft of gain. Did not make it to the top as the snow was knee deep from 2 miles on. First mile was muddy. Second was snowy with some icy spots. Amazing views of the lake.

Phone read 4.64m in 1:14:20 with 813ft of gain. I cut a couple of the major switchback and just ran straight up/down the hill (sorry erosion nuts). Cool loop that was snowy the whole way. Would have been super flowy on a mtb in the summer...

January hike right after a dusting of snow. Beautiful winter wonderland hike. You run into a small pond which was iced over today, low bonsai looking trees, and beautiful landscape in the distance. Saw a couple head of deer, coyotes, and hawks. Little muddy on the way back after things began thawing out, so early is better this time of year.

Pretty average for north of Boise hiking, it was icy and windy the evening I went which actually improved upon the experience, really. Few steep climbs were a decent workout. Signage is lacking in a few places for trail splits. Anyway, if you don't like dogs (or if your dog doesn't like other dogs) I'd skip this one, leashes aren't required and I was accosted by 4 random dogs. Two of which completely surprised me with their owners nowhere in sight. One of those was on a hillside with the width of the trail being maybe a foot and a half wide and a nice fall down the hill if I'd stumbled. So if your dog likes to run up to people consider leashing it on the hillsides and if you tend to fall over when surprised don't bother going on this hike.

Can be a little tough in the winter but we’ll worth it

Nice hike for an easier hike wear micro-spikes
