Snow through the trees on the ascent to Missouri Gulch OK if you leave early, as long as mornings are cold. I used mini spikes all the way to the top with just a little postholing down in the trees. Belford trail is pretty clear of snow down low once you start up through the rocks. It's easy to follow, especially on the way down. Had to use snowshoes in the trees on the way down and still slipped around in the afternoon slush.
