Comments
Comments: Great day on the Osceolas. Trail dry for the most part. Lots of nice folks met along the way. Emerel and myself headed out towards Middle Osceola but stopped slightly short of the summit. Hadn't really read any info on this prior to hike and found out tonight through research on this site that we had right trail and were almost there. Trail starts at last switchback and is quite defined until hitting some blowdowns; then a couple of less used paths start with one to the right the best bet from what little experience I have here.
