Lots of snow and ice making it more of a challenge that it would be during warmer months. Totally worth it as the view from the top encompasses the city. If you go during sunset you’ll be well rewarded as it drops behind the large mountain to the west.

Extremely pretty! But there was just too much snow on the trail compacted into ice making it dangerous and hard to climb...

Hiked it today in old running shoes. Trail was mostly packed snow and some spots of ice, which made for slow going on the way down. A bit slippery, but doable. Microspikes and/or hiking poles would make it easier!

So fun to hike in the snow—for sure use crampons

Beautiful hike. Did it early spring without poles/spikes, challenging but totally doable.

Holy moly. This trail becomes an entirely different beast in the snow. Spikes and poles are a must. Snowshoes will be helpful closer to the summit, although the narrow trail and steep incline makes them a little bit cumbersome. We made it about .3 miles from the peak, after battling thigh-high snow drifts and high winds for about 20 minutes before throwing in the towel. The views are incredible, but boy do you have to work for them. I’d love to do this hike again in the spring/summer to fully enjoy everything it has to offer.

Trail is basically groomed first 1.25 miles from trail head. Thereafter started post holing (I was wearing waterproof trail shoes with metal carbines and gaiters, and poles), max I experienced was thigh deep, mostly calve and knee deep. Made it 1.75 miles up from trail head up before turning around (1.25 miles further to see lake), wind has blown snow over the trail, Hope more people are up there tomorrow to keep the trail line. Would be well served to bring snow shoes for the second half to the top. Party of 2 in front of me said they were sinking, gentleman was wearing 36” snow shoes and said he was dropping almost a foot deep before they turned around at halfway mark from top. Beautiful on Blanche Trail as always, windy today with storm rolling in.

Came up to the top just as a crazy snow storm hit. Coming back down was a bit more exciting than I bargained for, but luckily it's a short hike. Microspikes for sure, maybe trekking poles too if you're so inclined.

We enjoyed this trail on Saturday 2/9. The view from the living room overlooking the valley and Wasatch Front made the hike worthwhile. Trail was snow packed all the way - thank goodness for micro spikes.

Saw at least 30 elk. So cool!

This is a quick and easy trail that offers a beautiful view.

Awesome little secret side canyon!!! This was such a fun exploration (especially in the winter).

Just park on Wasatch Blvd just outside of that neighborhood and walk through it.

You will need to walk on some dude's driveway (not illegal) in order to get there, but don't let that deter you!

Keep on going past you the trail will soon come into view.

This trail was beautiful and secluded.

Got to the waterfall and the busted out the snowshoes to climb up another 1000 feet or so.

Decided to turn back, but would want to come back this Summer or with a team of others and see how high we could get while being safe and cognizant of avalanches ....

Great hike on a snowy day. This was one of the more unique hikes I’ve done. Definitely bring showshoes and poles; the trail is covered in pretty loose snow. The last ~100-150 feet involved a bit of scrambling. You have to crawl down into a small hole into a cave to view the falls.

Wonderful hike, despite the fact that it was a snowy hazy mess at the top and we didn’t see that beautiful mountain lake view. We did see a moose about half a mile up which was awesome, and you go through different stands of different types of trees in parts which gives it a really unique feel in parts.

Nice climb. Don't underestimate if you're new to the elevation. Great views and very pleasant even in February. Bring a wind breaking layer if you're going to the top. Got very windy!

Went in early January. Hike was pretty, but the pond was covered in snow. It was somewhat anticlimactic, but still stunning!

Love this area its awesome and beautiful

Nice winter hike. Spikes were a must (Feb 2). Lots of dogs on the trail. Great look out of the valley at the top. My Strava said it was 1.7 miles up and back and it took us about 1.5 hours (but not sure if the whole hike was captured). The first half or so is steepish-and then flattens out at the top.

Good hike with the pup! I wish I had my spikes. It was a bit muddy, snowy/icy -the uphill parts had me slipping. Great hike out of the inversion.

The snow was pretty packed down, but certain areas are a little loose. Snowshoes not required, but they make hiking this trail a lot easier. The are parts where the trail will split, so having a trail tracker is helpful. The lake was completely frozen over, so we could walk across it.

So fun to get to the old radio tower at the end of this hike. The views are amazing! Heads up though: My dog and I were charged by a moose that we stumbled upon. She had two babies eating right by the trail so she wasn’t too keen on our presence.
