Comments
Comments: The snow line was between 3,000 and 3,500 foot elevation. No need for traction below this elevation. Much of the trail was dry with some spots of mud. Two sections of the Carter Dome Trail were narrowed due to the river bank erosion. The upper sections of the trails leading to the ridge were a combination of frozen slush, ice, snow, and bare ground. On the ridge the north slopes were primarily snow. Boots with traction can manage the ridge by staying on the embedded monorail. Snowshoes can be used on the ridge with only some bare areas either on exposed ledges or on some south facing slopes. The best views are from Mt Hight. The forest road running from Imp Trail to Camp Dodge currently has a forked branch hanging down to the ground on the Imp Trail.
