Surface Conditions: Dry Trail, Ice - Black, Snow - Trace/Minimal Depth, Wet Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Ice - Breakable Crust, Mud - Minor/Avoidable 
Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment: Light Traction 
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: A couple of easy crossings, some rocks on crossing slippery due to wetness or ice. Traction recommended. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Downed trees, all passable, but a few required crawling under. My kids counted 101 uprooted trees on our way back from East Osceola to the Mount Osceola trailhead parking. Only about 12-15 required maneuvering around on the trail. Most were being held up by other trees across the trail. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: We didn't take our dog, because we didn't have booties and I was worried the cold, sharp rocks would hurt his feet given it was predicted to be a cold day (he hikes without boots fine in the other seasons and shorter winter hikes every day). The light snow coverage on most of the rocks actually would have made it fine for him, but didn't know that beforehand. There were bare-footed bare dog tracks of another large size dog tracking on the whole trail.

Comments
Comments: Beautiful hike day, especially on the way back when wind was non-existent. Passed about 10 other hiking parties through the day. Highly recommend decent hike spikes (e.g. kahtoola). There were a couple people struggling with bare boots and walk-around-town type of traction. We all used our hiking poles too.
