My buddy has done this hike in the past and I have not. We were thinking about doing it May 24th-26th or is this a bad idea? I am not sure how the snow levels would be out there during this time frame. We would like to make it a 2 or 3 day trip. If there would be to much snow up there during this time are there any other good hiking trails to do that we could make a 1-3 day trip on without a bunch of snow? We are located in Anchorage and are willing to travel but do not want to travel more than an hour or two.
