Comments
Comments: Crawford Path is in good Shape, firt .7 miles is wet and muddy then the snow comes in and it's solid the whole way (microspikes the way to go). Trail wanders just a little before going up to Pierce in the scrub. Between Pierce and Eisenhower in the scrub use caution to stay on trail as there were no tracks as of Saturday morning. be careful of spruce traps. The rest of the way including the loop trails are fine, mix of bare rock and snow to Lakes of the Clouds, crampons for 1.5 miles to Washington as it's hard packed snow with some tiny postholing in a couple of spots. Along Cog Tracks is beat up spring snow but easy for descent
