The trail is nice and easy with a great reward and if you venture past the tiny waterfall you’re in for an adventure. Still closed as far as I know

Just went up on a wed morning. Trail was good except for the past after the saddle. (There is still snow and the lake still has frozen parts). By the way, there is no fish at Katherine lake at all! The trails going to the other lakes ( Stewart ) are not kept up, there are a lot of logs to jump over. Anyway, great hike, nice weather but do keep an eye for the fast storms! We did get a small hair shower.

Beautiful views, plenty of shade, cute flowers blooming, easy hiking, many off shoots to explore. Many gnats this time of year but plenty of ladybugs landed on me too:)

Amazing trail. Some snow in patches. stay next to the river all along. Absolutely serene up top, perfect for meditation and sailing in the crisp pure air.

The trail head is easy to find, and the trail itself is well marked. The trail is dotted with easy to read and understand maps posted at each junction. It is a very peaceful and enjoyable trail. Recommended for all ages and breeds.

Early June there were few parts with snow, quite a few with mud. Beautiful destination, the lake was quite full with water but not overly crowded (5-6 couples up top at midday). With bug spray, we had no problems with insects. Enough incline and altitude to get your heart rate up on the ascent, but mostly challenging due to the mud on the way down.

Walking by the river was great as there was little pullover to hang out by the water. Coming back it was paved probably for cyclist as there was a lot of them. Should of took the ditch bank back or preferred to come back the same way next time rather than the loop.

shaded ascent for the first 1/2 mile or so. That’s the hardest part, but our kids (6 and 8 managed fine). Then levels out with less shade and nice views. Highway noise is present through most of the hike but not enough to ruin it. even with the shade recommend going in the early morning or evening. Beautiful wildflowers the entire way. A good easy hike.

The trail is well maintained to the lookout from there it get overgrown. Went to the Penasco Blanco trail head then returned. No wild life.

No snow on trail. After you pass the Baldie turnoff there is a section with a lot of downed trees and you can tell the trail is less traveled. Noticeable decrease in people. Lake is really more of a large pond. Our GPS said it was 13.1 miles from Santa Fe basin to the lake and back.

The views were amazing, however, at times the trail was not marked well. I was glad I had the AllTrails app to keep me centered. The trail was very rocky with some loose gravel, I lost my footing a couple times.

This is a pretty, view of the city hike with lots of switchbacks and elevation gain. A bit rocky. Easy access and cell phone signal throughout. Accidentally took the loop instead of turning right to stay on the out and back.

Make sure you have the PRO version because you need to see this trail all the way up, it’s a maze. Stick close to the stream the whole way up. Overall beautiful hike. Pros are nicely shaded, waterfalls and great views on the way up. Cons are super overgrown and got pretty scratched up. Lots of gnats at start of trail but beautiful butterflies by the waterfall!

Got off trail because markers were not well seen on the way up, but the changes in vegetation as your climb are stunning. Made it to the lake which was a major feat! Last bit was through thick snow but worth it to the end. Coming down the markers were easier to find...go figure. Loved it and thankful we went all the way! If we ever do again, we will start early and hammock a couple of hours at the lake before coming back down.

This was a great quick hike! The beginning is really steep and had a lot of loose dirt/rocks so be careful of that. Great views the whole time and the river was nice and cool at the bottom.

Great trail! The all trails app says the access road to the trailhead is closed, so hikers must park 1.5 miles from the trailhead. We actually drove to the trailhead, we didn’t see any signs or anything. Several cars were parked at the trailhead long with ours. Amazing views at the top! Beautiful trail

Quick walk to get closer to the Arch. Cool site to see as well as the surrounding formations.
