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

Pretty cool hike. Made it about three miles before I realized I was wearing the wrong shoes. Super rocky and all I had on was sneakers.

It was hard but rewarding. There is an icy section before the saddle that would be better with microspikes. It is still doable without. I ditched my poles for the scramble to the top. Could have left my pack too. It’s nice up top but now it is colder there isn’t much reason to linger up there. My only complaint is that you can hear the highway a third to halfway up the trail.

For runners, first quarter mile is an absolute heart breaker. after you merge onto pipeline trail it's a breeze. watch out for rocky parts coming down. no snow today. not muddy. perfect condition. gets dark by 5pm ish

Great trail with beautiful views. Class 3 scrambling at the top to reach the peak.

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.

Lots of traffic, but it was Sunday. Pretty hike, decent view at the top. Not bad for a short walk. No snow.

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.
