Comments
Comments: Awesome sunset hike to wrap up the winter season. The trail is in great shape. Wore snowshoes most of the day. Switched to full crampons on the way down at the tentsite for added traction down the steeps and wore them all the way to the car. Treadway is solid up liberty springs trail. From Liberty summit to Flume is still somewhat soft and could use snowshoes, although someone has spiked it today on the loop but suggested full traction or snowshoes. They left a few shallow postholes.
