Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Unless your dog can jump onto a seven foot high rock, it will not make it up two of the steep ledges without assistance. I had to lift Brodie's 80 pounds halfway up these steep parts and then push from behind, but he made it. Otherwise he had a great time in the snow.

Comments
Comments: A thin but solid base the entire length. About two inches semi-consolidated dry new snow at the trailhead, with increasing amounts starting just below the ledges. Close to one foot of new snow at the summit. Enough hikers had been over the trail that the trail was decently booted in and light traction is all that was needed.
