Snow on trail
Weather was mostly clear with some clouds and blowing fog.

Had to hike about a half mile to the trail-head, there was snow all the way down to the parking lot. Snow was probably 6 inches at the bottom, and a foot at the top with drifts in places of 2-3 feet. Very nice dry powder, temps in mid 20's at the top.

Lots of people towards mid-day I would put the number around 1-2 hundred, including kids, dogs and everything in-between.

I hiked with my dog who enjoyed breaking the trail, the trail on the way down was like a super highway. It was a good hike but I plan on avoiding it on weekends in the future too much congestion on the way down.
