Did this May 15, 2022. There are patches of dry trail but its mostly still covered in snow. Trail markers are visible but hard to spot as they are only about three inches above the snowline. Spikes and gaiters are a must. Snowshoes might be useful as well as the snow is about knee-deep once you get above the tree line - watch for post-holing! There is a nice open ridge to stop for lunch at the turn-around point; it was too foggy to see anything but I bet the views are great on a clear day.

      NEW STARTING POINT - The main description of this trail is out of date, in 2017 a new start for the trail was built, it is still down the gravel road behind the gondola and up a short section but the new entrance is on the left just past the flat open gravel area and BEFORE the climbing cliffs. It takes you into the trees immediately and the creek crossing is now about 10 minutes up the trail. Signs indicate the new start so don't be confused.

        Hiked this trail on 2017.07.08. They have built a new connector trail that brings you to the actual Al's Habrich Ridge trail without hiking too much gravel road. Crossing the creek and climbing through two rope sections made this trail fun. The view was awesome (similar to the Chief but at a higher elevation). Bug spray helped a bit but the bugs were still quite annoying. We stopped at marker 33 (where there was a wide-opened area for lunch) as we needed to return to Vancouver before dinner. The trail took us about 4 hours to finish (including a long break).

          I recommend continuing from marker 18 to the top of Hadrich. Also, there were tons and tons of mosquitos and bugs. July 2nd

            Very nice hike, the trail was a bit muddy but it is well marked and easy to follow. After reaching the ridge we continued on to neverlandloop, there is a junction that points you to Neverland falls (1/2 hr out and back) or to continue the loop. We didn't come across a small lake during the loop, but did find a small waterfall.

                Very fun trails, there are two big rocks with ropes that you need to climb, other parts are quite fun and easy.
