07/02/20 Great trail! There are beautiful flowers and waterfalls for the first couple miles. You also have some pretty stunning views of the mountains along the way. Note that the trail does get rockier as you continue up, including a few sections of wet rock from the stream crossings. At the top, you get a great view of the lake from above and can choose to stop there or continue down to the lake. We decided to continue onwards. Definitely a lot easier with spikes and poles but doable without if you’re experienced and/or extremely careful. As an avid hiker with minimal technical experience (second time hiking in snow), I felt pretty comfortable with the descent. Overall, thought it was a gorgeous hike and loved the views (even before descending to the lake). Highly recommend!

Really great all the way to the top part overlooking the lake. We attempted the climb down to the water but had to turn around because the snow was slick and a bit too steep for what we were prepared for. Better to wait another month and try it again!

Started around 3:30-4pm with a dog and it took us only 3 hours with several stops to just go off trail and play around a bit. A lot easier than I expected but also a little chilly and it was drizzling toward the end. There was still snow at the top and we tried to go down toward the lake but one of my friends almost slipped and ate it and so did other people. Enjoy the view from the big rock! It’s still a pretty great view from a distance! There were tons of pretty flowers and I kept turning around to look at the waterfalls on the other mountain. I’d like to come again later when it’s clear and sunny. Overall, it was very short and enjoyable.

Pretty average until the crest of the ridge, then lots of fun with the snow! No spikes needed...but poles for sure. Lots of fun down to the lakeshore. Watch the spots where you can hear the water underneath. Otherwise Enjoy your midwinter solitude because everyone else turns around at the top.There's 3-5 feet of snow still on a good portion of the back side of the ridge. The steepest part is at the beginning, then its really not too bad, but hard to find the trail in a few spots. The snow is surprisingly sturdy still. Only a few issues on it, it was fairly soft.

I did this hike about 2 weeks ago and there was snow on the way up about 3/4 to the top. Just wondering if anyone can confirm if it is all the way gone or almost?

Beautiful hike. Not too hard until about halfway. Lake still has a frozen layer. There is snow still and it is chilly at the top....Perfect to cool off and relax though! Lots of rocks so risky for pup paws.

3rd time hiking snow lake, still as beautiful as always. Stayed on the big rock overlooking the lake because the way down was fairly icy. Went on a Monday afternoon, the trail was VERY crowded and many people had poor hiking etiquette. Please take your trash with you people! Other than that it was a beautiful day.

I go to Snow Lake every year and I love it! I've usually go in the summer to avoid the snow but it's beautiful either way. You need to watch out for avalanches with the snow but it's beautiful. In the summer when the snow has melted it's a completely different hike. The plants and trees are everywhere and it looks amazing.

Highly recommend to slide way down the the lake! It’s like a magic place in the Frozen. But be careful and stay safe.

Biked up on my Kona Saturday morning. Left around 10 AM, back in the parking lot by 4 PM. 11 long slow steady uphill miles, the road being in great condition (except the by-pass trail near the beginning, which is a steep up, then long down). Trail has a few good washouts past the old parking lot near the top, which means only 2.4 miles to go. Be ready to slither under a few big down falls and hoist the bike over a log or two and the bridge by the big washout near the end. Springs were clean and well tended, only a few parties there, super chill folks at that. Flew back in maybe 45 minutes. Fast and fun. VERY limited parking so get there early. No park fees. Thanks to any and all who helped keep the trail open.
