Comments
Comments: A little bit of everything on the trail right now. We bare booted but micro spikes at the least would have been nice. Snow shoes might be overkill but if you don't mind carrying them they would be helpful on many of the soft sections where snow is still feet deep. Plan on wet feet! Steep trails and not a bad view from spots on either peak, the ledges on North peak the best spot for lunch! Gray Jays there too!
