Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails were mostly in very good condition. There were some recent blowdowns a few tenths north of Mt Willey on the Willey Range Trail that are only partially dealt with, in that some branches have been removed enabling a duckunder and a stepover and a couple of different walkaround routes. Also there is a stretch nearby closer to the Mt Willey summit that can use a little brushing with small spruces encroaching on the trail. But overall the trails were well maintained.

Comments: Turned out to be a nice day, it only sprinkled a little in the last couple of miles before we got back to the car. It only downpoured when we started driving down Rt 302. Temperatures were pleasant. We originally wanted to do a more above treeline hike, but were concerned with potential thunderstorms and lack of views due to clouds, so we chose this more sheltered hike; but the views would have been fine anywhere and the storms held off till mid afternoon. Thanks and congratulations to Kergama. His first 3 4k's!
