The trail is open from Myra to Ruth stations now and can be used by hikers, skiers and snowshoers. The roads up to the parking lots are plowed, but the road to the Myra end is in better shape. However the trail is snow covered, and based on other years, the snow will remain in the rock cuts until mid to late May. Any earlier and you can expect to have to push bikes through snow in places. The clearing of rock falls and perhaps some deadfall generally does not take place until early June.
