This is not a conditioner series hike, just an ordinary hike with conditioning like features. I plan to go at a moderate pace, which means it will be a good workout though.

I don't think there is much snow or ice on the trail still, but nonetheless it would be wise to bring micro-spikes just in case the weather takes a dip.
