Comments
Comments: We hiked to Glen Boulder for sunrise. The trail was dry and bare until we got into the trees about 2 miles up. At that point we hit somewhat packed snow. We put snowshoes on for much easier walking and to avoid post holing. Once out of the trees we hit mostly bare, dry trail again and the snowshoes came off. We hit snow again on Davis Path, and wore snowshoes for at least a mile. Davis Path to Mount Isolation was a mix of snow, mud, and standing water. Isolation Trail and Rocky Branch trail have a lot of water on them. Some of the Isolation trail looks like a stream. The water got a little better as we got to lower elevations. I’d definitely recommend still bringing snowshoes for this hike, and plan on getting wet feet.
