06-22-19 this trail was not passable right past the Santa Fe Baldy turnoff. The switchbacks going down to lake were completely snowed over. I would say maybe the end of July this might be clear. Surprisingly the path up to baldy was clear of snow. So we headed up that path. Even this late in the year the gusting windshield had to be in the 30’s. My girlfriends water line started to get slushy. We were in shorts and short sleeve shirts prior to that but had to throw on the rain gear due the cold wind. Moral of the story is that at 12000 ft “you never know” so be prepared. This hike is all sorts of beautiful. Several swollen water crossings along the way, but nothing dangerous. Beautiful meadows along the way. Fantastic views. New Mexico green everywhere! If you haven’t done this hike do it this year as it is rarely this green. Even without summitting Baldy or making it to the lake this hike is worth it and recommended.
