A great way to spend the afternoon.

It is winter but the lack of use on the trail made it easy to hike on since it was not iced over as well used trails are. We were the ONLY ones out there... period! Downside Not the best views for hiking for the most part. Don't get me wrong it was spectacular but it is winter and the clouds covered most of the mountain view. Also it is quite treed in many areas and you cannot see much aside of the trail. Comment We are hiking in November so the scenery is quite different. No bugs which is a nice break from the summer months. I am rating this as average since it is winter and the summer might be an entirely different experience.
