Pleasant hike. Great views.

Great trail with sweeping views. Will definitely go back

Nice views at the top. Lots of switchbacks in the beginning with minimum views, Getting to the top is worth it.

Nice hike with breathtaking meadow views. Ended at the lake with a light lunch. September was the perfect time to go.

It was definitely difficult for us but so worth it!

Most beautiful ending to a hike ever. The way up is pretty hard and (honestly) ugly, but once you break through to the view and the meadows it is amazing. I definitely recommend going across the stream from the lake up over the hill to see the best view. Great hike!

Did this in 2015 with a few friends. Note that coming down to the lower side, having ascended Aasgard Pass, requires some boulder clambering skills, though no extra equipment above a pair of shoes with good grip is required. Outstanding views along the way. Really is a must hike for any fit person in Washington.

The scenery was beautiful and the weather was perfect. The hike gets very steep when you get closer the the top. My friends and myself didn’t make it to the top. I wouldn’t recommend for new hikers.

It was an amazing trail. There was snow about half way up, but even hiking in sneakers was doable. Completely worth the view.

In the snow, this hike was OK. Only made it about 70-80% up. Did it in sneakers and kept punching through the snow near the top. First time hiking this trail so no idea where I was going. Followed the snowshoe tracks until they stopped.

Sad - no good pictures and not much to see. But then again, didnt do the entire hike.

it is a amazing trail

perfect easy walk for younger children we were just wearing tennis shoes and feet were just a little wet by the end waterproof hiking boots would be better choice path is well packed snow entire way and a couple small streams to cross and explore along the way our children are 7 and almost 11 and had no problems took an hour to reach end before turning around and heading back on beautiful sunny day

My wife and I hiked to Skyline Lake and beyond from Stevens Pass. The trail to the lake was packed hard, so we didn't use snowshoes. The trail was rather steep but we didn't have problem. The trail from the lake to the rock garden was crusty so we used snowshoes. On the way down the snow on the tail became soft and slippery where the sun was beating down so we used Microspikes. I saw other people using skis, snowshoes, and spikes. The weather was sunny. The temperature was between 17 and 38 degrees F. It was a gorgeous day.

Started hiking this trail from the Nordic center. The first 1 mile or so feels like you’re going straight up. There is still a lot of snow which most of it is compressed. I was able to do it in regular hiking shoes. As my gf and I arrived to the lake, it was frozen over! We were able to walk over it, but it felt risky. Anyways, overall good short hike!

Wore spikes but didn’t necessarily need them most of the way. Beneficial going up in some places this time of year. View from the top was spectacular. Would definitely do it again!

Was an easy snowy hike along the river. No elevation gain. Only sketchy part was crossing a little stream in or snowshoes but overall.. absolutely gorgeous and one of my favorite peaceful hikes/spots

My first time there, made it about halfway up I guess. a lot of snow and with the elevation, that was a lot for me. hope to do it again soon and be able to make it to the top.

Very hard and grueling hike, but worth every step. Highly recommended that you camp and NOT make this a day trip.

This snow shoe was passed on word of mouth and I couldnt find much on it. I was able to find a GPX that loaded into All Trails for navigation. I wouldnt call this easy, more like moderate but could be made hard if chosen. Parking was easy and free with no pass needed. We just started up and followed the trail upwards. We then veered off the ski trails and crossed a saddle and climbed a ridge line. This hike was done on an overcast day as the lower elevations were rain but we managed to get above the snow level. The views were nice but cloudy. If you went down the valley at the end you could would be at the Stevens Nordic Center. On the return we broke trail up a knob and explored. Where as we didnt have great views the scenery and beauty walking through the trees was incredible. We saw a few skiers but no others with snow shoes. Great exploration hike!

once you step 45ft down from road, the only sound you hear is the running river. light traffic during Ice Fest.

Beautiful and easy snowshoe hike just outside of Leavenworth. Starts with path crossing river on foot bridge. Then path follows along river for about 1.57 miles. Nice short hike while visiting Leavenworth.

It doesn't get any better than this! Microspikes and good music. I forgot to hit record, but it was a grand time! Cool people to say hi to at the top too.

Snowshoe beyond the lake up to the rock ridge for views.

Trail is not accessible year round for hiking and is only for snow shoes.

Our first snowshoe trip with our family. Even though it was overcast, it was beautiful. We arrived early and were the first on the trail.

Good 2.5 hour snowshoe in and 1.5 hours back. Signage good but mainly followed the trail footprints. Not many people there today. Nice view of the lake and mountains at top.

Great fitness outing. Played around on crampons, but it was a little more on the micro spike side of trail conditions. Slick at the top (except not at all with crampons). Nice to just get out really quick. Fantastic partners for the outing.
