This is a very easy but very crowded trail even in the middle of the winter. I did it on a cold and snowy winter day (3/1/19) and it was packed with people, most of them probably go only to Nymph or Dream Lake but even the portion between Dream and Emerald Lakes was a bit crowded. The trail is well marked and it was well packed with snow. It is pretty level except for a couple of places where it gets steeper but the climbs are not long and the overall elevation gain is less than 1000 ft. The entire hike was only 3.3 miles and it took me 2h and 20 min at a very easy pace and with lots of stops to take pictures and enjoy the view. This is a good "first trail" for those learning to snowshoe or those wanting to explore a little of what the Rocky Mountain National Park has to offer without getting tired.
