The road to the gate at Frenchmen creek is dry. The gate was open, but the road is not in great condition. We made it about 0.5 miles past the gate in an SUV. The road had snow, but not enough tow arrant snowshoes. There is a trench once the trail begins. The trail is easy to follow. Look for the Frenchmen Creek sign when the trail splits. There is some dead fall just before the upper basin but nothing major. We did not go above the basin, but there were at least 3 safe ways to access the East Ridge of Harvard. Crossed below one questionable slope, but mostly stable conditions. Expect 16ish miles for the summit of Harvard.
