I’d wait until July to do this again.Awesome trail with a balanced amount of elevation gain and distance. After the 2nd fork in the trail, you start to encounter more snow patches, marsh areas, muddy sections, and places where the trail becomes a creek. The last 1/4-1/2 mile were pure marshland. High top waterproof boots would do fine with careful foot work. My shoes were only dry to 1.5 inches and after slipping in the mud and marsh, I just let my feet get wet in the marsh.The shore was a great place to dry my shoes and socks before heading back.
