Comments
Comments: Trail is mostly dry, with a few muddy spots here and there. Did not wear microspikes on the way up once we hit snow, but we did wear microspikes on the way down and were still sliding, nothing too difficult though and plenty of rocks to hop from on the side if you prefer. Snow is still deep in places and monorail is slowly melting with soft snow and postholing (maybe mid-calf). Overall an awesome hike with great views from the hut and the lookout.
