6.1 miles of hiking • 3250' elevation gain •
No issues driving to the lower TH. Snow on the trail began a bit after the junction with the upper TH. Took the winter route up the avalanche chute. Snow was a bit mushy so used crampons. Had the summit entirely to myself which was pretty sweet. It was a very clear day and I could see all 5 of Washington's volcanoes from Ellinor's summit.
