Lovely trail. The ascent through the clouds and the forest is all made worthwhile when you’re greeted by the beautiful Lake Angeles. We did this hike about a week back, no snow shoes required.

Surrounded by houses. Trails muddy and full of dog poop.

Fairly well trafficked trail by families, dogs and hikers of all ages,shape and size. It’s a rocky well maintained trail that’s a bit muddy. But the mud is to be expected on a January rainy day. If you forget your Discover pass you can buy a day pass at the trail head with cash or at the Ace Hardware that’s 10mins before the trail.

Great Views

It was a beautiful day and it was easy too.

Easy hike with lots of great views!

A great hike, very strenuous and technical, especially because of the snowy/icy conditions of the day, but views are breathtaking and well worth the effort.
Agility and good physical condition are required in the steep portions, but plenty of easy sections to recover in between.

Such a gorgeous area. Today we wore micro spikes and Yak Trax. Spikes were better. I was glad I had a pole for stability in a couple of stretches. Most of the trail is packed snow, but some areas are more difficult to follow because of blowing snow. We wished we had snow shoes the last 500 feet. Overall a great day.

Fun trail with a variety of different landscape. I’d recommend going off trail up through rockier paths whenever you get the chance.

Short and simple, great place to unwind after work, or a perfect picnic spot. Bring bugspray, where there's water there's bugs!

great snowshoeing trail

Packed my microspikes but didn’t ever have to pull them out of my pack. Awesome hike. Insanely windy at the summit. Make sure you dress warm!

Did this hike Jan-15-2018 as my first winter high peak. -19 degrees at Marcy Dam. The trail itself wasn't overly technical or hard, but keep in mind that climbing these mountains in winter, with added clothing and gear, drains your energy much faster than in the summer. Wore snowshoes until i got off the van ho and onto phelps trail then switched to microspikes. the trail is too rocky/icy/ narrow to wear snowshoes safely. Beautiful views in the last quarter mile and at the rock shelf at the summit. There is a rather steep ice-filled section towards the top that will require decent spikes and steady foot/hand work, but it is climbable without special gear. Keep moving and you'll stay warm, but bring extra layers if you plan to stop for more than a few quick pictures.

In the flat landscape of Eastern Michigan, it’s always nice to find any change in altitude, even if just a few dozen feet, like in this two-mile loop and the other shorter trails in the woods along the water. The trail was well-marked by posts and footfalls despite a few days and inches of snow. This wander through the trees was a pretty and quiet hour and an easy walk.

If you're picking this trail because of the lake(s) - I'd say don't. We hiked this in the late summer/early fall and while the trail itself was nice, the views were a little disappointing.

Not a bad trail, just doesn't offer the views of surrounding hikes.

Went yesterday. Not a lot of snow above treeline. Made it to the lake with just microspikes, but there was one pitch that was icy and one traverse over deep, unstable snow on a steep slope that made me wish I had an ice axe and crampons. Nothing too sketchy. Was able to detour around the ice by scrambling and push through the snow on the traverse, even if nervous.

Certainly windy in spots, but tolerable enough that I never felt the need to break out the windbreaker.

Lake itself was beautiful and frozen and creaking. Cold but not as windy as the ridge. I don't like wearing microspikes if I am on rocks and I also dislike taking them on and off, so I ended up slipping a few times. Definitely slick in spots!

Took me just over 4 hours from the car to the lake to the car. I tend to stop and take a lot of photos, though.

This is FAR from "Aggressive"!
I love this trail for exercising my dog, and myself, as well as early morning (sunrise) photography, but this is FAR from "Aggressive" (Maybe for YOUNG children I guess)

cross country skiing

Perfect day for cross country skiing especially on the Game Warden trail. This trail is remote enough to keep the snowmobiles away giving you peace and quiet.

A nice long loop especially considering the urban area. The trail was mostly flat and almost completely dirt. People walking their dogs, people watering their yards, people out for a nice hike with their families, overall a very pleasant walk.
