I’ve been hiking this trail quite abit lately … just about every Sunday. Today the trail was in good condition as in didn’t really hit snow till around the 4.6 mile area … there a some areas with snow/ice pack but as long as your careful you would be all right … but once you get to the 5 mile mark some type of spikes is highly recommended … Today only went to the 5 mile point and turned around.
