|Peak:||Pikes Peak (14er)|
|Date of Information:||09/28/2013|
The trail is washed out in some places in the first 3 or 4 miles, but it shouldn‘t be a big concern. Light dusting of snow from 11,000-12,000. Beyond 12,000 feet there are patches of very dry, wind crusted snow increasing in size which won‘t disappear until next season. Microspikes/Trekking Poles weren‘t necessary, and I did it in trail runners and didn‘t get my feet wet (but I was there early in the morning when the snow was very hard).
