"The route to Camp Muir is long, strenuous, and very susceptible to poor
weather, but it can also be incredibly beautiful, with views that can’t be
found anywhere else."

This is a great trail to get a taste of mountaineering. Many people enjoy this side of "The Mountain" year round but please have your essentials and know how to use them. Navigation can become challenging if visibility deminishes. Always be prepared for the wind no matter what the forecast predictes.

Lower portions of the trail were in great condition, hit the snow at Pebble Creek. Full sun and temperature in the 70's resulted in a lot of reflected heat and glare. Icy spots on the snowfield made the decent a little tricky. Good training hike for a future summit attempt. Parking at Paradise was almost impossible to find, even on a Wednesday. I ended up almost a mile down the road, which made my hike a little longer than usual.

I have done Muir in Feb. (if you like to posthole the whole way) and mostly during springs and summers. It is an endurance day hike for in shape hikers. Once on the snowfield, it requires diligent watching for changes in weather. Very good for those who wish to travel or look to train for things like the 7 summits. Nevergiveup.
