Dry and a very smooth ride. Encountered a female deer on the way so wild animals can be on the loose. Goes without saying but bear spray is highly recommended. Definitely a lot of fun

Runoff prevalent on upper part of trail,all the way to the split off to mountain pride. From there to middle entrance (valdora?) trail has snow patches, that are soft and deep in some spots. once you pass middle entrance/exit, trail is muddy and wet until lower 1/4 of trail i would guess.
