No snow until after the parking lot to the summit, maybe a couple inches

Small amount of sleet after the 1 mile mark. Near the top, covered in snow/ice. I recommend snow shoes for the final .5 to the summit.

Perfect, quiet hike. Add another mile or so to summit Mary's Peak. It was a cloudy, damp day and I only ran into 3 other groups on the trail. Lots of old trees, mushrooms, ferns. Smells wonderful. It's a solid uphill hike. I'm in shape and I felt it the next morning.

Great hike but a lot of people which is why it isn't 5 stars. It's pretty steep but only for 2.5 miles so I would say it is moderate.
We would definitely come again.

Beautiful trail. Lots of clovers, ferns and down trees.
