I hiked about 5 or 6 miles up on Sunday, Mar 3rd. The road was mostly clear of snow and should be easy for all vehicles although it is potholed. The trail was partially snow covered with a boot path that ranged from warn through to slushy to icy in the shady areas. Its doable without spikes or snowshoes.

This is a great hike.No sain,intelligent hiker starts the hike at Dosewallips.Start at Dungeness trailhead.Much easier,more scenic and streams cross the Dungeness trail often(except the mile or so before Home lake).Just inside of Olympic N.P. is a fine campsite(Cedar Springs)No other campsites between Boulder and Home lake.The very scenic Charlia lakes trail takes off SOUTH of Boulder shelter about 200 yards.

If you haven't hiked Constance Pass Trail, you are missing out on one of the most beautiful views and places in the Olympics. The rock shelter at Del Monte Ridge is amazing. It's a steep climb from the Dosewallips but well worth the effort.
