Came here with a group of people (6 + 3 dogs). It was amazing. The weather was amazing. A nice cool 32F. No rain or snow. Just some overcast clouds. The snow that had fallen days before made the hike that much more enjoyable. The dogs loved it as well. They were running constantly! Again we hiked all the way to the rock scramble but did not attempt it because of the dogs and there was not enough snow to cover the rocks for us to just walk over it all. I have decided to rename the rock scramble to “Boulder Scramble”. That’s what it really looks like when you reach the starting point of the scramble. In any case, it was a fun hike. Had great company and we were all able to enjoy some snacks at the Italian Garden.
