Arrived at 1pm on Saturday, was able to get a spot without too much trouble. The parking lot was completely clear of snow. No snow on the trail either.
Just before the ledge, there is a new set of wide stairs which must have been installed somewhat recently. They make the final ascent (from just after the fork) very easy, and are better at handling the hiker traffic than the rough trail that used to be there. Thank you for adding them!
Great view from the top. Interesting sights with a nearby pass from both a helicopter and an airplane. A couple dozen people hanging out, but not too busy.
