Due to heavy snow, the trail over Fuller Ridge will be tough for some early hikers. An alternate route in years past was to bypass the ridge and hike up Black Mountain Road. Beware that HWY 243 was washed out and may not be open till July. Check with Caltrans to see if it is open for hikers. Another option to get to I-10 is to go back to the Paradise Cafe and go all the way around on hwy 74 thru Palm Springs, a car ride of close to 2 hours

Be Advised: Snow conditions still exist on the re-route section from Tahquitz peak summit across Chinquipin Ridge. It is a little deceiving right now because snow is holding on that aspect but not evident from down below. Apparently, there have been a number of hikers that have backtracked down Southridge and back up Devils Slide.
