Checked out the trail on 6/16 to see how far I could get. The first mile in was completely snow free but then suddenly you hit deep snow at the first meadow. After crossing a little stream, it was actually pretty easy snow travel with just grippy trail runners so I made it another mile in no problem. I decided to turn around at 2.3 miles more due to a time issue than anything else. People are clearly going further in as there were a good amount of tracks. It is really beautiful up there and so peaceful. I ran into only two people on a Saturday afternoon. Just be prepared for snow and to navigate with a map/GPS.
