I hiked this on 7/16/2018. Beautiful flowers the whole way. Magnificent views. Just beware that when you break off of 403 trail to head for Mt. Gothic summit you are going straight up till you reach the top. It’s very steep but if you have the legs it’s worth the effort. Fantastic views!

Hiked it on 11/03/17. Washington Gulch road was muddy and packed snow, but made it to the top ok.
A few inches of snow on the trail most of the way. Impossible to see trail if not for previous person's tracks, which stopped near the end of the forest. Up the ridge, it was entirely uncharted, and the snow drifts sometimes rose as high as 15 inches. Snowshoes would have been helpful, but made it with just microspikes and poles. Almost say it was easier this way than in the summer, since the steep dirt / gravel is actually more slippery. Gorgeous views at the top of course, CB, Whetstone, the Bells, Ruby, Baldy, etc.

In spite of a constant descent you really dont appreciate the return trip until you do it. a great hike, poeple very courteous. A bit of high traffic with the SUV and off road vehicles. This was Labor day wknd.
