I wouldn’t have found the trailhead if it wasn’t for a car parked across the street from it. It was the longest short hike I’ve ever done, trudging and sweating all the way up and scrambling and falling all the way down. Even following someone’s footsteps 1 to 2 feet deep on the trail was hard. I expected a beautiful, Harry Potter movie-esque frozen lake with a clear surface but there was only snow. Wouldn’t have noticed if not for AllTrails keeping me on track. A nice man on skis made sure I was alright and took a picture for me near the lake (looked like a snowy field). On the way down the sun started setting and yeah, all I could think about was putting my foot down on something that wouldn’t give way an unpredictable amount each step. Fell over a log too, to add to the experience. I’m from California. I’m used to miles of dirt and dust. This was hard because I had regular street boots. Got soaked from the thighs down, drying off in my car now. Would try again in summer.

I hadn’t seen any recent pictures of the trail so I thought no one could hike it anymore or it was covered in snow, but it was beautiful! Muddy and confusing at the beginning but the rest of the way was uphill covered in soft or packed snow, I wore regular street boots and I was fine. Can’t stress how gorgeous and calm it was. Didn’t see anyone else until I was halfway down. Had the entire living room to myself, haha.

Snow is packed, but not icy. It was a beautiful hike to the lookout today, though clouds obscured most of the view.

Safe Snowshoe on snowy days when avalanche danger is high elsewhere.

Because the road was closed at Little Dell Reservoir we snowshoed the to the pass for a total one way snowshoe of 5.9 miles. The powder was knee deep as we broke trail the entire length of the trail. Started snowing as we turned around and came down the road because we we exhausted from 6 miles of breaking trail.

Yesterday we hiked this and loved it! Such stunning views! Except for losing the trail at one point and going off for maybe a mile. Meh. We took it clockwise, so I don’t recommend that with the snow! (We lost the trail at the last junction, closest to Dog Lake.) Spikes were great to have!

Great short hike with no foot traffic.

Trail conditions are still great. First .7 miles are an incline but the rest is a breeze.

Just got back from hiking/running this one, so far one of my favorite trails in this area. The views are unbelievable once you get up on the ridge. I unfortunately had no view at the summit though because clouds rolled in and I could barely see 20m in front of me. Current conditions are a little muddy at the beginning, nice dry and rocky through the middle segment, and snow at the summit. The last stretch to the summit you have to post-hole a bit in others' footsteps, there's probably a foot of snow in some spots but it's quite manageable. I followed the route on the map exactly, starting at Affleck park. I made one mistake, there's a fork about a mile in, just make sure you go right, it's the cleanest and most obvious trail, just take that. I was foolish and used my GPS tracker and it said I was off course so I went straight, only to realize that put me even farther off and I had to backtrack to the fork. Hardly anyone does this trail it seems, but it's amazing. I saw a couple bow hunters and only one other hiker, and there were not many footsteps at the summit. I definitely recommend this one.

Beautiful trail. Lots of people and off leash dogs. Strenuous climb up but beautiful views and stops along the way.

Doing this trail clockwise gets a little nuts at the end, it's quite steep and I end up sliding crouched down with my hands on the ground. I prefer a slightly different loop that starts initially along the very beginning of the Living Room trail, but quickly goes a bit to the north and you can meander your way up to the ridge above the Living Room trial to the north. I call this part The Attic because you end up going straight through the Living Room up high on a rocky ridge. Not many people go this way but it's a blast, you get to scramble around on some rocks along the ridge. It then hooks up with the top of the Beacon trail and then you have a choice to go down the steep side or, as I prefer, just go down the Living Room. I've done this circuit many times, usually my go-to when I want a shorter hike with some quick elevation and don't want to go far from home.

Nice walk today. We weren't on the paved trail so it was muddy. But the fall colors were lovely.
