Comments: Great hike with almost summer like weather. The first 3.5 miles of the trail are very typical of late-spring/summer conditions, but as you continue, the occasional off-trail snow patches migrate onto the trail and form an steady, icy monorail the last mile before the cabin. Between the cabin and the peak of Mount Cabot, there's intermittent monorail with VERY slushy snow. Do what you will, but I suggest hiking shoes/boots (trail runners for me) for the first section, and heavier duty boots (with microspikes or Yaktraks) for the final section. With the warm weather the next couple days, though, the conditions are bound to keep changing.
