Minor Issues
Update
Snowy, Icy - front part of the trail along Colorado Mines Peak contains many depths of snow. ankle deep to waist deep. the road up to Colorado Mines Peak is packed. as you male your way toward the saddle, close to the saddle the snow may be unstable. Easier to go from Colorado Mines Peak, walk down the rim to the saddle and catch the Mt Flora Trail.
