Just came back from Lady McDonald Ridge today Oct 22, 2016. Parking was closed for construction so we parked in the next street. Started hike at 6 a.m. There was little snow after helipad but no need to have traction device or crampoin. It was windy at the top. In the way back, saw a couple heading to the ridge for "Love Celebration"
Great work out! Interesting trail with many bridge crossings, mostly forested and shaded from the sun. Steady ascend with several steep sections. Beautiful view at Lilian Lake.
Also continued hiking up to the first Galatea Lake. It was steep and rocky. We could see the lake behind the trees, the color was amazing. Due to lack of time, we didn't try hard to find a way down to the shore, but returned instead.
Completed this trail in early summer. The walk to and from the cave does not offer much excitement. We did see some Marmots giving some attitude about mid way to the cave. It is a nice climb to the cave. You need a flashlight to see into the back of the cave.
