April 29th. No mud on the trails until you get to the upper portion. It's shaded, so there is some snow, but it's packed to ice mostly with a little mud on the side. There were three stretches of ice and that was it.

I expect any snow or ice on the trail will be gone in a few weeks. It's pretty and green up there. Went to Ruth's diner down the road after the hike.

The trail was very quiet on my visit 3-25. Only saw four other folks the whole way. This first half of the trail was really muddy. The last stretch to the top of the ridge is a real leg burner. Still a couple feet of snow on the steep portion made things more diffiult. I managed to make it without micro spikes without much difficulty.

Really glad I made the extra effort and went to the end. Snow was pretty deep and would fall through about every 5th step. Last 1/2 mile is steep also. Views on return actually rival the top in my opinion.

Easy hike to a big Douglas-fir tree. Pretty views of the canyon and down into Salt lake.

The first 1.5 miles are beautiful as there are mountains in the background (direct sunlight). The trail turns to the forest and the trail was quite overgrown (thankfully I could still tell the route). I'd highly recommend pants so your legs aren't all scratched up. As mentioned below, the last .3 miles are SUPER STEEP! Exhausting going up and a bit scary down (may have been easier to slide down on my butt). As a heads up, I didn't locate a great place to stop and take in the view (i.e. no rock or true clearing) so I turned around after a minute or so. Overall, great workout and beautiful scenery.

A little over 5 m. Go early or late as the first 1.5 - ish is exposed. Nice short steep incline last 1/4 m. Great views.
