it was easy on our bad knees but still gave us a bit of exercise. easy elevations was what made the knees be able to continue without any pain to speak of. and the wildflowers were gorgeous this time of year (May.)

Really nice little hike, very quiet and good views at the top!
NB : We saw that a pass was normally required (Northwest forest pass, other local interagency pass - available at wenatchee ranger station or a day pass that can be bought at the trail in summer months)

I love this trip, really got my heart pumping with switchbacks but worth it!

beautiful hike! took us just over two hours, and we ran most of the way down. beautiful views of leavenworth and the mountains and river! tons of wildflowers too! would recommend doing it in the morning to beat the heat.

Strong workout. Nice views at the top but nothing outstanding. Lots of fallen trees that are annoying if you like to walk at a steady pace. BUGS!!!!
We're glad we did it, but we'll not do it again.

Easy, beautiful half-day hike

The trail was hard to read, I ended up turning back. I was not prepared enough. Thanks I did a recording to find my way back.

Road is closed

We started out early in the morning and it was truly beautiful. There are many switchbacks with great places to catch your breath. Arriving at the top showcase views which are amazing of Leavenworth Valley, Cascade Mountains and Wenatchee River. Worth every breath.

We summited on May 5. Great hike until about 5k feet when the snow got pretty deep. You’ll want a downloaded trail map to find your way. Snowshoes and poles with baskets also a good idea. Bring lots of water, that last climb is a burner but well worth it.

I’m a heavy guy and decided to start dropping weight this year by walking and hiking. This new lifestyle change is eye opening for many reasons but for today it was the gorgeous views at the top (I took a right at the top to overlook Leavenworth). The trail was pretty crowded which was great for me since I had to stop all the time anyway so the extra stops were nice to catch my breath. An excellent experience. I’ll do it again.

This trail was absolutely amazing, my friend and I had her daughter with us who is 4 years old and she did great! Of course lots of little breaks with the little one, but it was very easy for her and she loved climbing over all the fallen logs that are on the trail! It’s not a super long way to the hidden lake either, and the view is beautiful! The way down is tricky, we crossed the stream and stuck to the right side .. found a trail that led us to a campground, we got confused because it wasn’t where we originally started had the same look though. Ended up asking some passer bys in a vehicle for directions & had to take the dusty road back to the trailhead.. now I know I’ll probably just go back the way I came to the lake and skip that whole other side!

that means you dont have to pay, but you gotta watch out for the pigs

Great spring with yellow daisies and some paint brush. Switchbacks all the way up. Tumwater Canyon, Leavenworth, and a 360 degree view at the top.

This makes for a great shoulder season hike when other trails are too snowed in. There was a considerable amount of down trees and debris covering the trail from the trail head to the first junction. Pants are recommended. The water is almost always easy to access and many options about for further exploring on and off trail. You hike the first mile and a half on a residential access road passing three or four residences. This is a bit confusing but eventually you hot the trail itself and shortly after that you are in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness.

Love this trail. Easy hike among giant cedars. beautiful green river beside you and snow covered mountains around you. one of my favorites. still a bit of snow, but the road is now opened.

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.

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!

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!
