Comments: The Tuckerman Ravine Trail (which is still closed through the ravine as noted above) was in better shape than two days ago: no real water, no blowdowns, etc. Huntington Ravine Trail had a fair amount of running water on it in places but it was easy to manage; the crossings were easy. The headwall was pretty dry and easy climbing. There was one wet area but it was completely avoidable. Lion Head Trail from Tuckerman to the Alpine Garden junction was wet in places requiring some rock hopping. The Alpine Garden Trail was wet in places as well, though much less so and easy to negotiate. The flowers have for the most part passed. Nelson Crag Trail, above treeline, was pretty dry, below treeline it was wet and muddy in places and pretty brushed-in (needs some work), especially as we got close to Jackson Road. Jackson Road itself was in pretty good shape, the one crossing easy. For more info, follow the link:
