This trail was pretty icy and narrow at parts. Ended up turning around and wouldn't recommend it for a solo hike with all of the current ice.
it was a great hike. nobody else on the trail, great view. but wish we would have had snow shoes.
It's a very beautiful area. Backpacking in and out is a little difficult.
