A brilliant hike on a cool, sunny day!! Not many hikers this time a year but enough to make you feel comfortable in their company when hiking solo. The lake was all it was remarked to be and more!! Thanks so much for trails.com!!
Great hike! It was a beautiful in the 80’s Saturday Sept 2nd summer day and the lake and views were simply gorgeous. The fair amount of folks with & without dogs on leash kept things interesting along the trail. This was my siggy's initiation hike & he deemed hiking a good pre ski season work out. It took us 2 hours to make the trek to Snow Lake and 1.5 hours out. We ate our lunch and lingered by the lake's edge, dangling tired feet in the crisp, cold water. Wild blueberries were in abundance in the area's down by the lake. We were glad to have packed plenty of water as the hot, dry day warranted the consumption of lots of water. All in all a great first hike :)
Far too many people and dogs for an enjoyable day in the mountains.
Not too difficult and a lot of bang for your buck.
