Early 02:00 am start with beautiful sunrise views from 12,000' by 06:30. Extremely windy and rapidly changing conditions at the top of the trail.

All by myself! Forest, meadows, waterfalls, scrambles. Hike was better than the lake, in my opinion.

Wildflowers, Waterfall, Llamas, Ice Formations and the scariest lightening & hail storm I've ever ran from coming down a Mtn. Beautiful Glacier Lak…

8.4 miles in 6 hours. Awesome hike with incredible views.

Snow fields near the top were slushy and slippery. Glad we had poles and spikes. Went slow and steady and everything was fine. Views were amazing!!

Beautiful hike up to the lake, however the trail is almost completely snow packed. Made the hike quite strenuous!

The trail is challenging but worth the effort. The scenery on the trail is amazing and Chasm Lake is a beauty! A must do for any one visiting RMNP.

Beautifully groomed trail. We had to turn around before making it to the lake due to time constraints. Will finish next time.

It was the first time a high altitude mountain for me.

Snow on entire trail. Postholing on the approach to Chasm Lake, but didn’t need snowshoes or micro spikes.

Snowstorm came in and didn't make it the last mile or so to the lake.
Sep 22, 2017
Big steps and lots of boulders. Sweet lake.
Sep 15, 2017
Steep and challenging but the view once you reach the lake is stunning.
Aug 20, 2017
Very challenging but worth it. Pretty steady uphill with lots of giant steps. Beautiful waterfalls. Definitely would recommend hiking sticks.
Aug 14, 2017
Includes remainder of hike to Chasm Lake and extra mileage to/from parking spot. Took some time eating lunch at the lake and enjoying the view.
Jul 27, 2017
Chasm Lake Traverse had 100+ foot snow field.
Jul 26, 2017
Only got glances of the panoramic views through the storm, but sitting by a lake with massive rock faces coming out of it was cool. Lots of marmots!
Jul 19, 2017
Challenging! Uphill & steep first 1/2. Very rocky. 2 snow patches - scary to hike across! Beautiful view after though! Not family friendly.

Still snow in a portion of the trail....amazing lake
Mar 11, 2017
Beautiful views, hard uphills but relatively easy on the way back. Loved it!

Awesome trek. Good wildlife, views. amazing lake.

Started out cloudy, but cleared to a beautiful blue sky. It took a couple of tries to find the lake, but we finally did and it was awesome!
Aug 25, 2016
Made it more than half-way up but after we got above the trees the clouds lowered and with t-storms in the forecast we beat a retreat. 1st half great.
Aug 4, 2016
After climbing out of the tree line, Long's Peak comes into view. The approach to Chasm Lake is stunning. Must do hike if visiting RMNP.
Aug 2, 2016
Awesome hike! The first half in the forest was a lovely hike, but when we cleared the tree line the views were amazing! Easy to follow trail
Aug 1, 2016
lots of fun and lots of people on the trail for a Monday
