No snow. First 1.5 m is a nice moderate incline. It then mellows out and becomes steep the last .5 m. There are so many wildflowers right now. Incredibly beautiful trail.

I did this trail as a sunset hike last night. I started at 5:10 and finished at 7:55. There was a lot of snow along the ridge and it's icy towards the top. Wouldn't suggest doing without sun haha. Still fun. Did it solo, RT 2:44
