Comments
Comments: Took the Eyebrow trail ascending. It was muddy and wet near the cables and metal bars but plenty of hand holds. Most of the trail was dry and in great shape. On the Old Speck trail there is still snow about .5 miles from the summit. There is still a slushy monorail but it was avoidable by walking on the side. Snow is slippery, so spikes could have been used. It is melting fast with this warm weather. A really beautiful hike and nicely maintained trails.
