I was able to hike the Fuller Ridge Trail this evening in perfect cool, cloudy, and calm conditions. Many thanks to PCT section hiker Mary (“Badger”) for supporting this survey hike.
Very little snow remains – especially for the time of year – on Fuller Ridge Trail, and with care, microspikes are not required to traverse this trail.
The areas of snow that persist are small, patchy, and soft. The most extensive sections are either side of the crossing of the North Fork of the San Jacinto River (PCT Mile 186.5), and then where the trail is on the north-facing slope between Miles 189.3 and 190.5. However neither of these areas presents a significant challenge, especially if using hiking poles.
