Default Cape Scott early May

Heading to Cape Scott early May to beat the rush, looking for some insight from anyone who has been in around that time of the year as to the trail conditions.
Cheers.

(wrong section of forum but maybe someone can move?)

It all depends on the actual weather. I've been there twice in May and both times weather was great, no major mud and gaiters were almost optional. That said, I've been in January and the trail wasn't much different, only to have 2 days of rain and then major mud holes/small lakes with no way to avoid swamping boots on the way back (it wasn't even raining the day I hiked out).

Hi. Easter was quite busy despite wet conditions (ranger cabin full plus tents at Nel's Bight). The trail had much more blowdown than this time last year. Gum boots weren't enough, should have worn waders
Apologies for a negative first post... the Cape was as spectacular as ever, saw whales and an otter, when the sun shined it was well worth it.

Rain gear, gaiters and good water proof boots required. I work at the radar site close by and the weather is kind of unpredictable at this time of the year. Nasty wind time to time. Bear spray is good idea as we have sighted cougars in the area this year.
