The trail is in good shape. Above 2000 ft it was snowing very hard and there was alot of snow. Snow shoes are deffinetly needed if you want to try and hike around the lake. I made it about half of the way around the lake and then lost the trail. I doubled back and my foot printe were already completly covered. Below 2000ft under the fresh snow is alot of slush.
All in all a fantastic hike. Views of Mt Pilchuck were non existent because it was snowing so hard.
