|Peak:||Mt. Belford (14er)|

Trail is 99% free of snow until about 12,000ft. From there on up, there are many ankle deep snow fields along the trail. The snow was soft, grippy, and easy to hike, but you can also avoid it by cutting around the trail. Way down was muddy, and the snow/mud mix makes it very slippery. No flotation necessary, but some traction would be nice above 12k. All the snow should all melt off soon though.
