I'm not really sure about my distance or elevation. This is ironic for the distance because I road my bike. I actually started at the trailhead for Schultz creek and followed that trail to Schultz Tank. Its full. I then started up the Water line road and found snow after some distance. Eventually the snow became more than I wanted to deal with. This was very close to the last stretch before you enter the Inner Basin, but I just couldn't do it anymore! There are lots of down trees over the road, and I would recommend not attempting this (if looking to do the whole thing) until after Memorial Day at the earliest.
