Used for the ascent and descent during a 2-night backpacking trip this Thanksgiving. Weather was clear, but cold, which made for dry trail conditions. The majority of the trail is composed of crushed stone/scree. This can make for unsure footing on steep slopes where it may shift under foot. I used hiking poles to improve my stability and avoid unnecessary falls with my heavy backpacking load. Most hikers are wearing masks, but the trail is not wide enough to maintain 6ft distance in most sections.
