Snowshoed this today and also used spikes in spots. Not easy by a long shot but fabulous workout and beautifully serene. Ran into less than a dozen people en route. Spectacular panoramic view at the top. Look forward to returning to also do Flora and Eva. Windy at top. Dress appropriately.

This is not an easy trail. Maybe in July when all the snow is melted it will be considered moderate. It was cold and windy at the top. We had to go around a ton of snow that was was hard and slippery which meant going off the trail. Decided to branch off to Mt. Flora nearby but did not go to the top. I did not like this one for some reason.
