We didn’t make it to the lake cause we ran out of time, but its doable. There’s a lot of runoff coming down on the trail. The last 1-1.5 miles is muddy, and still patches of snow to climb through.

Hike up the ski hill (mostly melted) but then snowy the rest of the way. After reading the reviews, I decided to bring my snowshoes. I saw about 30 hikers today and I was the only with snowshoes. However, I was glad I brought them and I got many comments that I was the only smart one on the trail! I don’t think they are mandatory (Yak trax or waterproof hiking boots would also be ok) and I did still slip going down the slush. Especially in the afternoon when the slush was melting even more. I was grateful to have my snow shoes on. I actually ended up at Dog Lake and was underwhelmed. Once I was pointed in the right direction, I made it up to Lake Mary and it was very worth it. (Had to take snow shoes off on rocky areas). For the best views, keep hiking to the left of the lake as if you are going to Lake Martha. And if you are headed to Lake Martha or Lake Catherine, I wouldn’t go without snow shoes! Can’t wait to go again in a few weeks and see how it’s changing!

More snow than trail today. Very slushy and wet. We found our way to the lake, but probably would have enjoyed the hike better in a few weeks when the snow is melted.

The stream crossings are running pretty fast right now. Turned around at the last one. No one has their dog on a leash.

Hiked the trail this morning. Shaded beautiful hike with several water crossings. After the major stream crossing, at about 7,000 feet, we came across a rattlesnake in the middle of the trail. He was nestled in between some rocks, not bothering anyone, and still there on the way back. Seemed very comfortable there and actually pretty secluded. So, if you go up anytime soon and see a carin in the middle of the trail, BEWARE! You are pretty darn close to the rattler. We made it to the meadow. No snow on the trail.

We probably should've used snow shoes but we didnt bring any so we hiked it in gym shoes and pants. Theres still a lot of snow but most of the way the snow was packed down enough that you could walk up it. The snow is getting more slushy so you'll slip around a bit and in some spots if you're not careful you can fall into deep snow up to your waist. Because of the snow you can't see the trail right now but we just used google maps. If you can find it, its gorgous right now. The water is a crystal turquoise blue and its really quiet and peaceful. Theres also a lot of wildlife. We saw a lot of squirrels, pot guts and even a woodpecker.

I've done this trail twice with my daughter. Beautiful wild flowers and pine trees. Lots of shade, we went there last June. We had a great time.

Don’t follow my recording we blazed our own trail but we rocked it. Slushy so we slid down the whole way.

Wait till summer. It’s impossible to find trail and if you had snowshoes I’m sure you could tackle it, but w/o it’s just hard terrain to navigate

The trail starts with a steep incline but levels off after about .25 miles. It’s a beautiful hike. My group made it in about 1.5 miles until the snow stopped us. Parts of the trail were muddy and covered with slippery ice. We did see a deer up close (bonus!) Looking forward to trying this hike again in late June.

Listen, please listen. Do not hike this trail yet! I made the mistake of not listening to my gut and got myself in quite a bit of trouble. Please wait at least two more weeks to hike this trail, or to any trail that leads to Dog Lake. The trail is still covered in a mix of tightly packed snow and loose, thick snow that you fall knee deep into. As you walk through the snow and you create a footprint trail, you do not realize that the heat from the sun is getting into the pockets of the snow in which you just stepped upon. So, essentially, by the time you walk back from Dog Lake, your entire trail is completely erased. I made this mistake yesterday and without any emergency camping gear or fire starters, I got completely turned around and lost within the Canyons. This was a dumb, negligent mistake that I should have never made, but I hope that nobody else attempts to reach the lake, as I did until we have had a few consecutive days of high 80 or 90-degree weather. I'm not going to give this a bad rating, because it is a beautiful hike. However, my mistake is my mistake and it caused me to have quite a scary experience.

Great trail! Lots of streams- wear boots! Would not recommend going into the snow (which appears about 2ish miles in) but if you’re a risk taker, you don’t need to worry about sinking into it, as it is nicely packed down. If you do venture into the snow, be sure to download the map if you can because it is hard to tell where exactly the trail is.

Beautiful canyon. The trail is clear of snow until almost 3 miles in. The last section of the trail as mapped on Alltrails is buried in snow, no definitive trail. Snow is wet/dense enough that you don't posthole, but it doesn't seem like it's worth going past the area with an overlook ~3 miles in, unless you're planning to hike up to the ridge for the views anyways.

Great hike for a scramble! A number of spots will have you using hands and feet. The half mile or so after the final creek crossing is tough — steep and slow going. Turned back a quarter-mile from the end when the snowpack was too slick for my trail runners, going to try again in June. The shade is really nice and there’s a handful of creek crossings for cooling down. Quiet before 9am.

Beautiful

There are about a dozen ways to make this summit happen. From Brighton as advertised is a really solid plan but once you get into the lakes area you can explore a pretty extensive network of trails.

Snow has softened and has left pockets. I don’t recommend doing this without snowshoes quite yet.
