Comments: Trail is in great condition. The snow started to warm up later in the day, and would give under foot a bit. We chose to put on snowshoes for added traction at the steep section, but this was strictly preferential and there were plenty of people in microspikes and bare-booting. The walk up from 7 Dwarves is 1.5 miles to the trailhead, crosses private property and follows a snowmobile track for a while. At the private drive, there are two wooden bridges which the owner has asked to remove all traction equipment when crossing (completely not needed at that point anyway).
