Comments
Comments: Earlier this week the trail report noted it was all packed out. Today it was not at all. Unfortunately we didn't bring our snowshoes based on the previous report and absolutely regretted it. There were several inches of fresh snow and the higher in elevation we climbed, the deeper it was in some areas. We postholed in many places and sadly made a mess for others which is unusual for us. Definitely need snowshoes for this trail.
