Snow on trail
The road to the trail head is clear of snow and in good shape. Headed up the trail where patches of snow started at about the 1/2 mile mark. Snow cover thickens and becomes fairly deep by the first switchback. About 1/2 mile from the top of the ridge to Mason Lake the track ends and to continue means lots of post holing. I continued up Bandera, but the snow got too mushy and deep and my gaiters weren't working very well. Great hike and great views.

Diablo Lake Trail (Apr 17)

Diablo Lake

North Cascades

Follow the Diablo Lake Trail up and across talus slopes on the flanks of Sourdough Mountain to impressive cascading waterfalls and stunning views. This hike in the North Cascades Institute's backyard makes a great option for an early season hike in stunning North Cascades National Park, much of which is inaccessible during the winter and spring.
