Access to trailhead is easily passable by passenger vehicle. After you leave Colorado Trail and start on Shavano Trail it becomes an exercise in bushwacking and postholing in deep snow. Once you finally get by all the fallen trees the snow angel is in good snow hiking condition, microspikes and trekking poles are strongly recommended for the snow climb. Was an awesome glissade down the angel. With the warm temperatures the snow angel won't be around for long. Would suggest a gps for route finding at least on the way back.

Definitely agree with your recommendation of bringing a GPS - my and a buddy spent quite a while finding our way back to the TH without a GPS two weeks ago.
