We saw a sign near the Wolverton lot that read that the trail was closed due to icy conditions. So we went on The Hump trail to Heather Lake. Another couple on the trail said they came up Watchtower and it was open—so we came back that way. Gorgeous both ways! A little precarious on the Watchtower trail, but the view is unbeatable. An exhausting hike that went about 9miles(half of it uphill) and took us almost 6hours. It was an incredible hike! I’d rate it as very challenging.
