    Easy to follow trail with firm snow in the AM until the 11,400ft sign. Then I followed a glissading track straight up ( but you could make your own switchbacks), could get confusing in spots if you'd never been up before. The wooden posts were helpful past the saddle. As usual, Mountain-forecast website was unfortunately spot on with their prediction of 40+mph winds at the top. This was my 3rd time hiking Humphrey's in the snow and have never felt the need for my ice axe until I was at the top with those winds! :) I didn't encounter any terrain requiring traction (microspikes etc). Happy to have had my gaiters for the occasional postholing in afternoon snow. Highly recommend with the right preparation!

    Fun desert hike, arrived around 10am with decent parking options. This time of yr. I recommend 1-2L of water. Lots of trail signs to keep you on track.

    I hiked this beautiful trail on 10/14 after driving up from phoenix the night before. With perfect weather, I was confused why I only saw 1 other hiker the entire day! Spotted a fox and some pikas. I would recommend an ice axe to be secure in the section before the saddle. No snow past the saddle (albeit I turned around at the false summit), but lots of loose rock. So be mentally prepared to slide when coming down. The road to the TH is pretty rough for 2WD. Just before big bear creek (which was very low), there was a giant pothole taking up the road filled with water. With the right vehicle, I would imagine it would be fun! But I parked immediately after that and hiked the remaining distance to the TH.

    Fun, short hike with amazing views. Prepare to climb up some steep rocks for a stretch. Cactus were in bloom! I got to the parking lot around 9 and that seemed to be the cutoff before it got super busy.
