Would not recommend this hike currently. We started yesterday morning at 8am anti-clockwise following the reopening of the mountain. The first part of the trail up to the fork from angelus oaks was very difficult as the trail was in very bad condition and non existent for large chunks. It was all very badly burnt. We didn’t want to go back down that way so we had come up so we contiunued upward hoping the trail would get better.. it didn’t. The snow and lack of trail made it very hard and we made it to the summit late. By the time we were up there it was 5pm. The ridge trail was impossible to find because of snow and so after some scrambling towards east San Bernardino peak and the light fading we decided to divert down the other side of the mountain on the Momyer creek trail. We do not know the conditions of the descent on the second half of the loop after Anderson peak but if it’s anything like the way up, would not recommend it. We also encountered possible mountain lions on the momyer creek trail. Be careful and atleast wait till summer!★
