The trail was in great shape today. Snow was packed down the whole way up. Spikes and hiking poles were a big help. I didn’t even need my gators.

Winter wonderful!!! Made snow angels at the lake. I can see why everyone loves this trail

Great trail with beautiful views. Class 3 scrambling at the top to reach the peak.

Lil snowy up last 2 miles or so. Can never get enough of this hike. Rolling hills for days to steep thigh burner: and finally rocky ridge scramble to the top. Layer up and maybe extra socks/water proof shoes

11/23 - Couple icy spots past the saddle but not enough to really warrant spikes. Most of the trail was nice and dry.

Added a couple miles since the road to the trailhead is closed for the season, and didn’t make it much further than the trailhead bc of snow. But I’d like to try this again in the spring/summer, I bet the peak is pretty nice.

This trail is a hidden treasure! The forest is stunning! Definitely need spikes! The beaver dams are super cool.

Great trail. Easy to access, extremely clear, challenging but not overwhelming, and an excellent payoff for your effort. Today (11/18) there were a few sections after the saddle with some minor ice, but no spikes or poles required. No snow on the trail, and it was decently populated for a Monday late morning. Also, the fee station (pay as you exit, $3 per car, $40 for the year) does accept cards, not just cash!

Great trail but lost where to go at the end. Lots of snow at the top

In great condition, small amount of easily manageable ice at the ridge. Will be back for spring wildflowers.

Sweet spike today! So glad I wore spikes and was warm enough. You’ll need ‘em! The last .06 mile is along a ridge, with about half of that along a rocky/knife edge. On the descent I slipped, even with spikes, and slid about 15 feet down a rock wall. Pretty freakin’ scary. I should have had a pole and gaiters would have been nice. Trail is tricky to find along the knife edge/rocky scramble part so there was some postholing. Be safe! Thx to all the kind people I met along the way!

Very pleasant trail this time of year. About 1/3 forested, 1/3 switch backs, 1/3 ascent from the saddle. The saddle is icy being sheltered from the sun, spikes not needed just walk carefully
