 Princeton - Mt. Princeton Road  

Conditions Update: If you‘re thinking of a Princeton Hike this gorgeous Fall week... The road is bone dry to the Radio Towers, and just a couple of tiny ice patches all the way to the upper trailhead at 11,800. We pulled off the road and parked in one of a few spots within 1/4 mile beyond The Towers. There is no parking at the 11,800 trailhead junction with the road. Once on the trail, Yaks or Spiders sure came in handy above 12,300‘ for slippery walk over few inches of hard pack snow in between talus with some ice patches.
The Mt. Princeton Hot Springs restaurant (yum!) was open at 8am for (late) breakfast - handily at the base of the Mt. Princeton Road turn off.
