Some folks just went up Bull-o-the-woods and down walker lake. Some snow, but they had no problems.

I don't know about current conditions, but I assume that you know that the road to the trailhead doesn't open until Memorial Day Weekend.

You will have to walk from the lower Leman Creek trailhead before the opening.

No problem.
We did it in March, so had to start at about 7800'. Had the entire place to ourselves, and it's a beautiful hike.

Thanks, splattski, That sounds like you started at upper Lehman CG/TH? I think we're going to do the same thing and see what happens
