The south side is definitely the easier way up, and I'd take the north way out. Still too much snow to make it out North now, as I was up at Willow lake two days ago (06/24/17), I'd wait a few weeks.

This is an awesome hike. There is still too much snow to complete the full loop, but one can get to the peak just fine. If you go now, bring a garbage bag for sliding down on the snow sections. It is do beautiful along the whole hike.

Made it 2.5 miles up. Trail muddy and wet due to last storm and still lots of snow the farther up I went. A few more weeks and it should be melted. Beautiful hike!

Way too much snow at the moment. Gate to the campgrounds are still closed. Need to hike an additional 4 miles just to get to the trailhead. But tons of snow with no visible trail
