Sandy, Utah Map

One of my favorite places to hike! Never disappoints. Always peaceful and serene with few people on the trail. Hiked it yesterday... was the only one on the Maybird turn off. Trail ran a chunk of it, mostly on the downhill, too steep for me to run up most of it. Used a new pair of icebugs cleated trail running shoes. The snow tracks don't follow the real trail but they get you there fine. I didn't realize it had dumped me out at the highest lake, so I kept hiking up a snow shoe track til i realized I was almost to the saddle up there, so turned around. beautiful day. nice to get above the inversion. Sad that we have haze in the air from the California fires right now. Could smell and see it. Maybe consider wearing a filtering mask until the fires quit out west.

I hike this often, but the first time in the winter. it is gorgeous right now and only slippery in one spot!! i highly recommend going this week. moderate hike if you are used to hiking.

Nice winter hike. Trail is in pretty good shape right now. Snowshoes are overkill and there’s only a bit of ice.

Gorgeous hike with the snow. Most of the way is fairly easy, gets steeper towards the end. We ended up going past the falls about a half mile to a gorgeous overlook. The part between the falls and the overlook is even more consistently steep, but worth it. The snow was beautiful! We took trekking poles, which was a huge help on the way down with the slush.

Beautiful views. Luckily there were other footprints I could follow. Snow is pretty deep in spots. Spikes and gaiters are very helpful

Beautiful hike. It's pretty icy right now, spikes would be helpful.

I went in from the south but the ending point was amazing.

Last bit was steep but worth it. The Falls were beautiful!

We did this one on Thanksgiving Day. Beautiful hike, fairly easy until the last little bit.. I'm in moderate shape and I had no problem doing this hike though I did have to work hard. I used hiking poles which made a huge difference both in getting up that last steep bit and in saving my knees on the way down. We went just above the falls and my hiking tracker put the trip at 6.4 miles with an elevation gain of 1726.

Amazing and beautiful. The lake is frozen over and most of the upper trail is snow and ice.
