Hiked Quandary Peak April 9, 2012. Beautiful sunny weather, some wind later in the day. Road to Quandary trail head clear. Trail in treeline was mostly clear with some icy spots. Maybe fourteen hikers seen during the day. Most people did not use micro spikes, skis, or snow shoes. Followed ridge line at treeline and mostly followed snow fields with clearly defined trail thru well packed snow. Above 12,500 most of the trail followed was dry, with occasional snow patch. Mountain goat observed at 13,400. Snow patch on summit was icy. Followed the new recommended trail on return and snow depth was considerate at treeline and warm enough for significant post holing.
