Comments
Comments: Mt Livermore Rd, Signal Ridge Trail

The road is mostly snow free. A few more warm days will melt it all. The entire trail is snow covered except for the first few hundred yards. 9 people summitted on Saturday. Several more turned back at the stream crossing. The first three used snowshoes for most of the trail which worked well. The remainder booted or spiked, so there are many new postholes mostly along the edge of the softening trailbed and monorail. Snow pack is about 3' max near the summit, averaging about 2' above 2000'. With above freezing temps, I'd recommend snowshoes. Spikes might work if it's been below freezing for a while, but the trail will be rough and uneven. I rock hopped the stream crossing on the trail to the notch. That route looked easier without getting wet since the stream level was really high. The regular trail that goes around the old trail that was used all winter is broken out now. It looks like it hadn't been used much this winter, so it's not very consolidated. The summit was socked in.
