The trail was icy and muddy just as previous hikers mentioned. The incline is fairly steady the whole way. Beautiful scenery!

Such a beautiful day. Trail is snow packed and icy a good portion of the trail, so go prepared.

Gorgeous hike today. Brought spikes and didn’t really need them on the way up, but was nice on the way down since there were some slippery bits. Felt warm up at the lake, lots of sun. Did most of the hike just wearing a long sleeve top and gloves.

11/15/19. Snow and ice but walkable with trekking poles. Yak traks would help but spikes would be Overkill. Moose nearby. Awesome hike, nobody around.

11/13/19 Icy for pretty much the whole way from 0.5 miles on up, and then snow at the top. Spikes and poles saved my bacon. First time doing this one; knew it was steep but man, was it steep.... Cool frozen waterfall a couple miles up that you walk across. The trail in the upper meadow was not super obvious, had to hunt a bit to find it but it's hard to go too far off track because the mountain is in front of you.

Pretty ice now, but beautiful hike. Saw a couple of moose. The top was chilly, but the hike up and down will keep you warm. Took me an 1h 45min. Going down I slide on my bum due to my spikes some how falling off my feet without me noticing.

This trail is great! Incredibly beautiful the entire time, challenging at times however worth it. I bought spikes before this venture and I was glad I did as it made the packed snow/ice a breeze. Took me an hour and a half going up, able to spend a few hours up top (there is enough to explore) then then it took me 2 hours to get down only because there were several moose off the trail I had to go check out. I was surprised how warm it was and didn’t need my coat until the end. Total trip was 6 hours noon to just before 6pm and wouldn’t have wanted to be out there later than that as I would have had to use my head lamp. Enjoy!

One of my favorite hikes in Utah. Went today early - it’s ICY. Made the mistake of not bringing spikes and practically ice skated down the mountain. Fell on my butt quite a few time. BEAUTIFUL and worth it

This trail is tough, and in the winter it’s pretty much entirely in the shade (barring the very top) so bring spikes to avoid ice. This is more of a workout trail than a scenic or fun one... Put dogs can go ham!

Most of the trail is covered in ice or snow. Crampons/Yaktracks are a must if you don’t want to be nervous about falling. Took us 2.5 hours to get up and 1.5 on the way down. Lots of snow at meadow. The trail kind of just ends, there’s no exciting summit at the finish. Would definitely do again in Summer/Fall but not so much when there’s snow on the trail.

Trail is muddy and icy. Microspikes are very helpful for the descent.

Great winding trail. In the shade the whole time. Micro spikes definitely help this time of year.
