Beautiful mountain views the whole way. Me, my partner, and my daughter were the only ones on the trail the whole way. The lake is so beautiful. There is a road to get up to the lake, but this hike is definitely the funner way to go. :)

Great trail, with great views of Timpanogos. Lake is remarkable. Trail was mostly dry with a few patches of mud and snow. Lots of Aspen.

Trail is great up to Silver Lake with some water and mud right before it. From there to Glance it's all snow and spikes and poles are very helpful although it's possible without. I recommend going early before the sun softens the snow too much. Beautiful up there where it's still winter able to look down at spring below!

As of 5/19/20 the gate is open. Up to silver lake the trail is clear of snow but from silver lake up to silver glance lake it’s a scramble. It is basically a make your own trail after silver lake.

Lake level is really low. Bones from a dead horse along the way.

I hiked this May 2, 2020 and made it up to the saddle were the trail starts descending down to Alpine. The first 2.3 - 2.5 miles were pretty clear with occasional patches of snow and small snow fields to cross. After that I put on mico-spikes and used my trekking poles a lot. I brought up snow shoes but didn't use them because the mountain is pretty steep and it was easier with the mico-spikes. Having Alltrails with me helped me stay on track as the trail higher up is completely covered over with 2-5 feet of snow with some cornices even deeper/taller in places. I saw lots of droppings for moose or elk (bigger than deer dropping) and much of it was pretty fresh. I didn't start until 8:30, but it's a good bet I would have run into some big wildlife had I started at sunrise. The snow is much less slushy early in the AM so if you plan to go up where I did, go early. With all the snow still up high, this was a challenging hike. Loved the views. Not many flowers blooming yet. Aspens still without leaves. Saw a male Norther Harrier - (Marsh Hawk) beautiful. I love this hike. Lots of solitude. I will do it again and plan to summit Box Elder Peak in summer.

The road to the trail head was still closed for the winter. we just hiked to silver lake.

Awesome hike with beautiful views! There is still snow at the top of the trail and the lake is mostly frozen. All in all, my dog and I loved the trail.

Attempted this today, but had to turn around 2.3 miles in due to the snow. Better if I had snowshoes. Trail is a bit rocky, but lots of trees and the scenery is fantastic. I’ll be trying it again

Very fun hike. I started at 10:00, and the little snow along the path was still crunchy. After spending 45 mins at the lake, the snow warmed up and made it harder to traverse. In several places up top I sank to my knees all along those sparse snow fields. My advice: go earlier in the morning. I would do it again, and next time I would strive for the upper lake.
