Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trail begins with bare ground, wet, muddy, leaves, slippery rocks, and water pools. Changes into snow up to a couple feet deep and back to bare ground, wet, muddy, leaves, and slippery rock sections. Repeat conditions back and forth almost up to Glen Boulder where rocks are uncovered but mossy and slick as it was snowing and raining on/off. After Glen Boulder, we ran into full snow and post holed (over 3 feet deep stuck in a pine trap). We put on snowshoes but didn't make it to Slide Peak as weather turned for the worse. Over all, slow-going on a slick trail with many boot gear changes from bare booting to microspikes to snowshoes.
