Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Generally well-maintained. Flume Slide trail was not as poorly maintained as some reports would lead you to believe--but it was quite steep. Some rocks on the Flume Slide scramble were still damp from rain on Friday (9/23) making climbing more difficult; we did pass several groups descending Flume Slide, so it does seem possible (though maybe unreccommended). Some confusion on the summit of Mt. Liberty; coming from the Mt. Flume side (towards the Liberty Spring Campground) the trail appeared to split in two directions off of the top of the summit. The correct side follows the ridge across some more rocks; there weren't blazes on the direction away from the summit, but there were several leading towards it.
