there was a nice trench that was easy to follow up just past treeline, though given the snow that started falling it might be gone. microspikes essential, and once you get past treeline, it is easy to lose the trail many times over - this leads to some pretty impressive postholing. so either bring your snowshoes with you or grin and bear it (as we did).
with a combination of actually finding the trail, using gps, and the downloaded photos from 14ers.com, we were able to approximate a route close to the original one planned.
road all the way up to denny creek trailhead was dry when we got there, had some snow as we left, but should still be no issue for anyone in 2wd.
