Hike was beautiful as you pass some ruins at the start and also a stream and cabins along the way. This is a good introduction to switchback. The trail was snow free up to the saddle. At the saddle it was windy and chilly so did not spend much time at the saddle. Spent enough time to regroup take a break and move forward as sweat and wind made us a little cold. As we continued past the saddle the trail did thin out and we did need to pay attention to our GPX as some areas do have a little snow on the trail and it easy to loose track of the trail as there are more switchbacks. We did not need micro-spikes for the areas where we found snow.  The views are absolutely stunning along the trail. The summit view was gorgeous not much wind and was snow free.   Plenty of places to sit and enjoy your lunch with a view from the summit. Make sure to arrive early to find parking as there are multiple trails which start from Icehouse Canyon Trail. We arrived around 8:15 am  and had to park on a side roads. Pay attention to no parking signs. We stopped at Legends Burgers in Upland (1645 North Mountain Ave) which is a few miles from the trailhead. No indoor dinning but by now we have mastered bring your own chairs and find a parking sport and enjoy.
