    This is a beautiful hike on a well-designed trail. I did in on October 21, 2019. There was a little snow on the trail; less than an inch most places, but up to four inches in some areas on top. Still, the walking was pretty easy. The lower parts of the trail were muddy and slippery on the return, as it thawed in the afternoon. The main trail skirts around several minor peaks along the ridge, staying fairly level, but there are branches that follow the ridge more closely. I recommend the easier main trail on the way up, and the more challenging ridge trail if you have the energy coming down.

This is a beautiful hike on a well-designed trail. Today was overcast, and I was in the clouds when I arrived at the peak, but while there, the clouds lifted and I got some good views. There was a little snow on the trail; less than an inch in most places, but three or four inches in some areas on top. The lower parts of the trail were muddy and slippery after they thawed in the afternoon. The main trail skirts around several minor peaks along the ridge, staying fairly level, but there are branches that follow the ridge more closely. I took the easier main trail on the way up, and the more challenging ridge trail on the way down.
