My husband , 14 yr old son and I hiked this in April . Thou snow shoes would of helped We hiked along with some cross country skiers so the snow was packed enough that we could hike in our regular snow hiking boots . It was a great hike with spectacular views . Stopped at the top and ate our lunch . Took longer than expected and be sure to bring hiking poles but definitely worth it . Probably much easier during the summer .
