Comments
Comments: This trail is a mess below 2500' with mud, slush, running water, ice, and spring snow. It transitions to spring snow and unstable monorail at 2700' and becomes stable monorail at 3000'. Above here, there is unpleasant calf-deep postholing if you step off the monorail. Below 3000' the snow is too sticky for snowshoes to be useful as they would likely badly ball-up and I didn't want to find out so my snowshoes got a ride up and down the mountain. Snowshoes are also useless for the upper monorail as they are too wide/might still ball. The last section on the LT with the partial views had the narrowest monorail with nice deep dropoffs on each side; the summit rocks are bare of snow/ice.
