Went on Saturday Oct 13 (the year winter came early). Snow covered the trail the whole way with some bare spots on the bottom 3rd.
The trail was well packed and easy to see and navigate till the top. At the top, it appeared to be less traveled and then the trail disappeared on the last little bit. Here we had to trudge through some deeper snow (would sink to your knees roughly) to get to the other side and see the valley.
I'd recommend cleats and gators. Weather was cold and windy at the top.
As mentioned before, park right at the trail head as opposed to driftwood parking lot.
Did the whole trip in 3.5hrs, that included walking around exploring at the top and having a lunch/beer! Great hike for beginners that want to step it up a notch.
