I made it about 6 km in, to an elevation of approximately 3,375 meters before I had to turn back due to deep snow (up to quads and did not have snow shoes, so basically post-holing along ridgeline). Knowing I was turning around, I went off trail and snapped some photos. Glad I did, it was awesome! There are really nice areas all about. If anything, I think this trail is underrated if not under-utilized. It is beautiful through and through with the majority of the hike through forest area (serene and picturesque). Views open up toward the top and are excellent. Steep but manageable. Saw quite a few wildlife tracks on the way up. Definitely a bit off the beaten path. I am willing to do this one again a bit earlier in the fall. As stated by another poster, trail is clear of trees and in very good condition.
