Dry and in great condition. I recommend doing this as an out-and-back trail, and avoid the steep southern stretch of the loop.

At first the hike doesn’t live up to it’s difficult rating but towards the end it’s incredible steep. Overall very rewarding, and enjoyed looking though the literature at the top.

Yes, a lot of elevation gain but enjoyable. Dry and now wet areas on my hike today.

Cool trail. We found it while driving around. I did not see any snow or slush that people talked about. All clear.

Trail conditions are not ideal, lots of mud and slush. Still, a great hike, short and steep, with spectacular views on a crystal clear day.

Packed for 2 miles, then you need snowshoes. Not too busy, started at 9:30

Just a couple of inches of snow on the trail, so not too bad. Micro spikes helped. Cool view from the top.
