Beautiful hike all around and very good huckleberries along the way!

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.)

It was so awesome!!! The trail is a very good condition. Get there early to find parking since it’s a very popular destination.

Forest road is open! Snow on last two miles of trail to the lake

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.

Had to hike 3 miles up the forest service road just to get to the trailhead, which tired us out and we couldn't reach the lake due to heavy snow packed on the trail passed the bridge half way through. I will definitely be back in a month or two I can only imagine how nice it will be up top!

Road is closed

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.

well maintained trail for all ages and abilities. very little snow left. perfect for younger kids who love to explore,ours are 7 and 11. scenery and views second to none.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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

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.

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