Solo backpacked this on 6/15/18. Cloudy, gloomy and in the mid 50’s. No views today unfortunately, but maybe next time! Didn’t see another person on the trail until the zigzag lookout.
A few downed trees along the way, but noting you can’t crawl over or under, unless you’re carrying a 36 lb backpack. A few spots with snow left on the trail once you reach 5000ft, but it’s easy to walk across to stay on the trail still.
