Comments
Comments: No major issues until you get to the flats just before Osceola's summit, standing water has created some large mud sections that are avoidable with either rock hopping for herd paths that have formed around them. The rock sections just above the chimney, between Osceola and East peak, have many loose rocks so care is needed not to send them careening down the trail onto people. The chimney section and bypass had some wet sections that were slippery and required care.
