I hiked out the foot trail from wheeler monument September of 2013. It was s fairly quick jaunt because it was mostly a decent from higher elevation. Beautiful hike along open fields, pine forests and creek valleys. There was a decent amount of mud on the trail even though there were no heavy rains in the recent past.
