Comments
Comments: Everything below 3700 feet is snow-free. Some running water on trails below that but not bad. Above 3700 feet was a slushy mess of a rotting monorail. Tons of post holes. Really tough spring conditions in sections but we managed with poles and gaiters. Snowshoes would not really have helped. Hopefully the warm temps will melt the snow over the coming week. We completed the loop in 7 1/2 hours with very short stops. Still a nice day, just tough conditions near the top so mentally prepare!
