Trail is in great condition. There have been enough people hiking this trail since the last report that there is a clear and definite trail to follow the entire way. Snow is not deep in any area, but microspikes will definitely make this hike more enjoyable. Conditions were great, couldn't have asked for a better day!

Much of the trail in the trees looked like photo 1. It does get a little thicker by maybe 2 inches more towards the treeline.

Photo 2 is midway up between the treeline and the summit looking towards the Three Apostles

Photo 3 is looking up towards the summit of Mount Yale

Photo 4 is on the summit looking towards the direction i came from. The rocky area to the summit is light on snow and easy to do.
