Comments
Comments: Trail starts just behind the house on the left. Trail was a combination of wet and dry leaves up until the viewpoint that looks out at the lakes. Then there was increasing amounts of snow on the trail. At most I think there was an inch or so of snow on the ground and it was fairly packed down today. Steady climb the whole way up. Once you reach the junction with Mead Trail, the summit is about 70 yards or so away.

Put spikes on for about the last 0.3 miles or so from the summit on the way up and left them on until the viewpoint looking out at the lakes on the way down. Though we did see plenty of people without any traction today - just felt better having the extra traction under our feet.
