current conditions Huerfano/Lily Lake TH?

Postby d_baker » Tue Dec 04, 2012 5:10 am

Globreal posted conditions on 11/17 for the Huerfano/Lily Lake trail head, but does anyone have more recent conditions status they can share?
We might do a day trip in there this weekend for Huerfanito. Anyone interested?

I was up there 11/24 for the Iron Nipple. The road was a little icy the last half mile to the upper TH. Clear if you're just going to the lower one. The north facing slopes are holding a little snow below treeline, pretty bare above. I have pics if you want.

I just got home from hiking Mount Lindsey today actually (12/4/2012). The road has essentially no snow, but there are a few small icy sections for the last 0.5 mile approaching the upper trailhead. Nothing too treacherous though; any 4WD should be fine, and an AWD car could probably make it up there with some careful and slow driving. However, it looks like there is a chance of snow in the forecast, so obviously conditions could easily change.
