 Elbert - Standard  

Just a quick update for those looking to accomplish Mt Elbert.

Trail head: Light snow on the road and parking lot but I made it all the way in a Prius

Trail: 12-16" of snow up to tree line, but a small worn down track made snow shoes not required. Above tree line it was light snow and icy. Microspikes or crampons are a must above treeline. Trail is barely visible above treeline.
