I was up at Tahoe Meadows on Sunday there was still a fair bit of snow on the ground, we dropped Tyrolian. But I bet past the first climb it's clear sailing after that.
Have not heard a recent update on the bench yet, bet its close to going, would not be surprised if there is still some snow just before you get to the first lookout and maybe just after the fire road past the bench. You should do it and report back
I rode the Bench out and back on Monday and then over to Van Sickle to end… I’ve never seen better conditions out there.
Snow’s melted plus the Rim Trail sawyers have cleared some big trees recently. Absolutely perfect!
I turned around just before dropping into the trees after the clearing towards Spooner. There’s usually that small snow patch around there but I bet it’s clear now. Rim Trail sawyers cleared out some massive fallen trees recently and the trail just felt “fresh” if that makes any sense!
I heard you have one of these black beasts coming???
So I rode Spooner to Van Sickle today 5/28 and it was all good, a couple small snow patches just before you get to the first lake view, but not enough to stop anyone. Rest of the trail just about perfect! Several hikers at the bench and a few on Van Sick, all were friendly.
