    Matthew Swoboda reviewed Mary's Peak Summit Loop

    about 1 month ago

    We didn’t complete this yesterday because we weren’t all equipped for the significant remnants of snow, so turned around about 2/3 of the way. But we enjoyed what we did. It was somewhat otherworldly in the fog and stillness. Must come back when it’s clear but also not too busy!

    I hiked with Jim- he said it all!

    In response to my WTA Trip Report someone posted:"the USFS continually closes the bootpath, but visitors continually take down the closure notices and use it anyway, which as you point out, is damaging to the ecosystem there. Thanks for writing about how loose and awful the boot path is. There's no room for error; if you slip, it's a long way down."

    Being a rule follower (generally...) I'm going with three stars based on the expected experience if you do the same.
