 Details

Trail was damp/muddy in spots between East Portal and Heart Lake. Some creek crossings are dry but others are still flowing. Dry from Heart Lake across Rogers Pass to the point where the trail crosses back over the Divide to the north slopes. 1-4 inches of early-season snow on the north slopes that was melting quickly below 12,500'. Didn't have microspikes but footing wasn't really an issue. Trees are finally turning colors in the Winter Park valley.
