12.1 miles of hiking • 2250' elevation gain •
I wanted to see how the melt off was progressing, so I headed up to Herman Creek. The lot was full, but 90% of the folks were doing the Indian Point Loop. I just headed south, up the creek trail. I went about 6 miles in. The creek crossings were wet and a bit slippery but fine. Fairly continuous snow started at about the 5 mile mark, but was easy to navigate. The snow got softer and deeper past Whisky Creek, but was still only 6-8 ". A few blooms but not many yet.
