The trail is easily passable, though easily lost in snow in several areas. Snow is not deep though. No snowshoes required. Micro Spikes recommended but not necessary either.

The willows are very boggy, I suggest heading to the slope on the east of the bog and traversing south to catch the trail higher up. We did this on the way down and had a much better time.

I will try to get a trip report up tonight.
