This was rough. We did this hike in July and it was a brutal climb. Even worse was the terror of coming down. Bring trekking poles, though, and you'll have a better time of it. Outstanding views of Jackson though.

This hike is on the easier end of moderate. Some snow on most of the trail, so although spikes aren’t necessarily needed, they are highly recommended. There were a couple falls between myself and a fellow hiker due to slippery snow and mud areas. Gorgeous hike though! Creek/river is still frozen, but in some areas you could hear the water still rushing underneath the ice. That was neat. You can also (very carefully!) walk on the frozen water up to where the waterfall would normally be

Hiked the summer trail in the snow. The last mile stretch was the most challenging but worth it for the views at the top.

I did this trail in the summer of 2016 and loved it. the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because there were alot of fallen trees covering the trail at different points so it got annoying trying to get past them. we also ran into some big horn sheep which was pretty cool.

Great hike! Good obstacles but i would not call it hard. We backpacked in for a couple of nights and stayed near the shelf lakes to the East of North Gap Lake. Beautiful views, and some of the lakes had fish. I was using dry flies and it seemed they would take about anything I put on top. Will do this hike again one day even if only for the fishing!

Good hike, beautiful in new snow. Didn’t need snowshoes and spikes were helpful, though not necessary. Didn’t see anyone else on the trail today (01/01/19).

This is an amazing hike. I did it on Xmas Eve with light snow and it was as challenging as it gets (used snow shoes when needed). Would not advise doing what I did, but you won't be disappointed any time. Amazing views. One of the best hikes in the area.

I did it for total eclipse last August. spent 3 days at the top. If you like quite and seclusion this is it. I found hike up hard with full backpack, had to stop several times. At 62 it was the best backpacking trip of my life. Just beautiful, the views the wild flowers, plenty of water. Didn't see any indication of bears and one local I talked to said there hadn't been one seen in a couple of years but at least do carry repellent. people without packs can do this one easily in a day.

Love this trail!

Pleasantly surprised with this trail! I loved it! Can’t wait to go back in the summer. Easy to find, easy to follow. Moderate to easy. GPS was exactly 9 miles. Nov 27. Light snow on about half of the trail. The rest was dry or slightly muddy.

My husband and I went on this hike 11-17-18. There is a small area to park. Make sure to follow the trail straight from the parking area then go to the right and cross the stream/river (a little difficult when hiking) to get to the more scenic trail. Otherwise if you go to the left and up the hill a little it heads to a road that you can walk on. On our hike we saw wolf tracks, a bison and a grouse! We didn't make it the whole way due to getting a late start. I would recommend if you are looking for a nice hike/walk and a chance to see wildlife!

Coming back on Cache Creek trail/road make a bit shorter loop with views of the mountains.

Attempted this trail 3 weeks ago and the snow was too much. Hip deep at points and the trail is covered. We made it to the top of the first rock scramble and turned back. Will complete this trail in the spring once the snow melts.

Short but difficult scramble rewarded with a gorgeous of view of Hot Springs St Park and Thermopolis area.

This is an average Trail. Nothing too exciting. $5 to get into park. There are much more scenic trails in Colorado but if you want a Sunday afternoon walk this would be good.

Many different trails to choose from. Maps were available at the trail head and that was helpful. I hiked tent canyon trail and then Ogden creek trail. Signs were easy to find and follow, no issues there. Lots of different beautiful terrain. Very secluded and never ran into anyone. Spotty cell service.

Hiked this trail on Oct 25th and was sad to see the gate to the campground was closed. It added an extra mile to the hike, but it was still worth it. The lakes are on their way to being frozen but not quite there yet. Gap Lake was still okay.
There is snow on the ground but hard packed and easy to walk on. Dress warm, the winds pick up quickly and make for a cold walk if you’re not prepared.

We did this trail as part of a loop (we hiked up Medicine Bow trail to the summit and then took the Lakes Trail back down to the parking lot). It was a great hike, very scenic but unless you’re prepared for hiking in snow and strong, strong winds then I would recommend doing only the Lake Trails part of the trail up and down. Even the Lake Trail has some snow on it, but it’s hard packed and easy to walk on. Some icy sections but overall a walk in the park compared to the other loop section we did! Hiked on October 26th

The trail is open to horses and so is quite rough and has lots of divots. However, there is something about the Wyoming Black Hills that is so different from the Dakota side. You can hike all day and not see another person. Its quiet and peaceful and almost guaranteed to be secluded.

Favorite Big Horn Mountains hike. One of my happy places. The hike out is short but pretty strenuous. Don’t attempt with a hangover.

My 9yr old son and I hiked this 10/20/18 and it had some snow, which made it a little slippery and wet. Still made it to the lake! Beautiful hike. Reviews say the 1st half is the steepest, I do agree..however the whole hike it basically up hill. Great views at the top!

Nice day hike. The trailhead is a little hard to find, just after a sharp corner of the dirt road. Wyo Peak is the North peak with the broken down fire lookout building. Amazing views on a clear day.

Agree with all prior reviews, with a few additions for this time of year: did this hike on 10/16, still very doable even with some minimal snow/ice in shaded areas. Quite a bit of mud once you get up higher - would recommend YakTrax or similar. Made coming back down a bit tricky - quite a few slips and oh s**t moments. Gorgeous views of snow-capped peaks from the top. One hour and 5 mins to top, coming from sea level so surely could be done quicker if you’re better acclimated. Definitely recommend if you are looking for a short but challenging hike.

Great hike. It takes about two hours to complete on the lower trail. Awesome scenery the hole time with a waterfall overlooks and landmarks. The trail is pretty well maintained perfect for just about anyone. I’ve hiked this same trail hundreds of times over the years with the family kids of all ages and puppies

Was a Scenic trail. Loved the rock formations. We got to hike thru little snow. on the shaded side. Was a great trail for these Kansas visitors.

Trail was hard to find as others have said. We followed it as far as we could and then went up to the rim to eat lunch and traipsed around afterwards. Beautiful hike. Went in October and it was 50 degrees and it was still almost too warm for this hike.

last part of the long journey coming from Dutch Joe Creek area

Great hike with stunning views. Highly recommended

Just did this oct 14. got within 100m from the top, waist deep snow and after hours of making fresh tracks we called it! Past the junction there was no way to find a trail. With it wind chill we think it was about zero degrees. If you're going to go later this season I suggest gaiters and snowshoes!
