Elbert from the NE was a great hike on a great day. 2WD to the North Elbert trailhead was easily accomplished with only a few potholes to avoid. No major snow on the trail, mostly just a few patches here and there. Beautiful conditions all day, a couple tricky spots on the trail with snow/ice on the steeper ascending parts. Easily 50+ people on the top, though still a great day. Colorful aspen trees were the highlight of the descent. We took 11 up and all made the top and back down safely.
