Comments
Comments: This was a lovely hike--there was still some lingering foliage down around the bottom, and the views from up top were top notch. While there's no snow most of the way, there was quite a bit along the top .5 mile of the trail, and this made the trail particularly dicey the top .2 mile from the cabin to the summit. The trail gets pretty steep in that section, and the ice made the rock scrambles all the more difficult--transforming what I would say is a moderate-difficult section of trail to a very difficult section.
