|Peak:||Huron Peak (14er)|
|Date of Information:||10/27/2012|
The trail was fairly easy to follow for most of the hike. There was about 2" of snow below treeline. Above treeline there is a few inches of snow on the switchback that were shielded from the wind. The other 1/2 of the switchbacks have been blown mostly clear. I had gaiters with me but never encountered anything deep enough to warrant putting them on. Microspikes were helpful and were worn for a majority of the day. Our chances of summitting would have been greatly impaired without them. The snow was melting down low as we were descending, but there was enough shade I would expect some of it to remain for a few more days.
