Hiked this stretch weekend of 3/12-14/2021. The climb from the parking lot to the ridge was a lot of fun with occasional 3rd Class scrambles. The ridge itself still had snow on the north sides which made walking faster in the mornings when the snow was crust but truly awful past noon when the temps heated up and the snow turned slushy. The last 3 or so miles to Mt. Minsi follow a forest road and were super quick. The down climb to the DWG was slow-go due to the snow and ice on the north-facing slopes of the trail.
