It's a pretty easy trail, but it starts off strong with a steep climb right off the bat. We were out of breath in no time! It's a very quick hike to lake area, which is primarily why the hike is an easy level. But the trail doesn't stop there! You can continue hiking up the glacier, which is what we did, and that can add to the workout!
A word of warning. It can be very windy! A hiker (who wasn't wearing snowshoes) even fell due to the wind. We were slightly ill-prepared for the wind, so definitely bring goggles if you're going! It'll also help so you can see. Although I had sunglasses, the wind combined with blowing snow and sun glares made everything like a white-out. We hiked up the glacier as far as we could until the wind became scary strong and we could no longer see anything in front of us.
This is a great snowshoe trail, and I had a blast! If you want something easy with the option to take it up a notch, this is a great place to go. If you've already gone, let me know what you thought! I'd love to hear what the weather was like for you.
Key takeaways: If you're going in winter - prepare for cold & wind, bring goggles, consider wearing snowshoes.
