We have an Alum Cave Trail update. Chrissy and Nathan left at 8 am heading down Alum. They just returned saying it is impassible. It took them an hour to go a quarter of a mile. They said the cables are covered in snow and layer of ice on top. They are below your feet. The snow was waist deep heading around the cliffs. I would say this extremely dangerous for anyone to try at the moment. They hiked back up and decided to head down Rainbow. Please do not attempt this trail. I will not send my crew down this trail to rescue anyone who decides to attempt this trail. It is dangerous. Give it a day or two of warmer weather and sun. I will keep you posted on the conditions.
Welcome to the LeConte Lodge blog. We hope you enjoy the information we provide to make your trip to the lodge the best it can be.
