Has anyone done this recently? Want to know the trail conditions

Disappointed in the upkeep tons of poop bags lined the trail but I love this hike the beginning is super easy and the last bit is pretty hard but the view at the top is worth it :)

My girlfriend and i did this trail yesterday afternoon. It was a lot of fun, definitely challenging in some areas, but a lot of the challenging areas have bypass trails. i chose the harder lines to add some more fun. We started at the entrance off Missouri Gluch Rd. i was hoping to be able to make over to the Moon/Gamble Gulch trail, as i wanted to make it up to the shaft house. Due to snow drifts we werent abe to make over there. We did however make it to the end of the Pickle Gulch trail off Apex Rd, although towards the Apex side the snow drifts were pretty big. It is memorial weekend, so its still pretty early in the season. That being said, the trail did have some muddy areas and like i said, snow. This is a very well kept trail with a lot to offer with great views. i was driving a jeep Cherokee with 31s and a 3in lift. i was able to do all the challenging parts of the trail, but i would advise taking the bypass areas if you have a stock height vehicle. I have posted some pics of our ride on this trail. Also check out my instagram for more pics, @mhysom. Enjoy!

Just a friendly word to all the people who say you can let your dog off-leash. Mine is always on a leash because he's sometimes anxious around new dogs. So while your little buddy may be friendly, he will have us all in a tizzy if he runs loose and comes up to our group. Also, I've met hikers who have lost their dogs letting them run off leash. They were devastated, and their dogs were at risk from predators. So please keep your dogs safely leashed. Thanks!

Great hike but the runoff can make some people's shoes wet. so wear waterproof shoes with good traction. Great views and the waterfall is very then strong due to the runoff
