      90% good. There are three spots you have to walk. The last climb before the ensign fork is snow covered. At the ensign fork there is a lot of mud you have to walk as well to start the descent to City Creek. Other than that it’s good.

      A few spots of mud, but the road is wide enough to get around them.
