Went Sunday March 5. Was sunny and quite warm and with the weekend hiking/snowshoe traffic, the trail was in difficult shape. Fairly narrow in some sections and if you stepped off the trail you could find yourself down a foot or so in the snow. Made the hike more difficult, but some nice views to be had along the way and beautiful (and icy) at the top. Would have appreciated a decent technical pair of snowshoes for the trek, although not necessary, just watch your step.

Really fun hike! Went over the weekend. Although I took snowshoes I didn't need them as the trail was pretty packed down. The trail is narrow at times.

Lots of up for the first half and lots of down on the way back. Nice maintained trail. Just the right amount of challenge. There's is lots of exposure and not easy in extreme heat.

Narrow path made it hard to pass other hikers. View was beautiful at the top.

The views at the top were breathtaking! My dog and I both really enjoyed the trail and only ran in to 1 other couple at the top. :)

great hike with beautiful views at the top. I'd say this trail is moderate in difficulty level making it hard in the 90 degree heat of the day. very much enjoyed this one.

Start early to avoid heat and be in the shade on the way up. Steady incline the whole way up, getting quite steep for the last mile. Beautiful views from the top! Quad burner on the way down and little shade as it was afternoon. Would do this again when a bit cooler and a little better shape.

Really enjoyed this hike as a fam, would say go early as most of it is in sun. Hiked with 3 groups we arrived all at trailhead same time, other than that saw only 3 others. Take lots of water, we all drank our entire camelbaks. Dog friendly, a great 3 hr experience , 1 1/2 up 30 min photo ops, and only an hour down.
