      Going clockwise from the barn there is still a fair bit of snow up to the high point. The trail is then good down past the hut down to Cokato other than two muddy bermed corners that aren't draining well. It's good for a lot of the way back to the Montane Trailhead with a few snow patches.

      Good to go up to where it crosses Coal Creek Road to the River Road bridge. Just a couple of wet spots.

      Still quite a bit of snow in open areas below the spur road - rideable when it's frozen. Wouldn't be good yet when it's warmer. It looks much more snow-covered above the spur road.
