Comments
Comments: Rocky Branch trail is in pretty decent shape with dry areas and water running in places.
Above the crest of the hill where trail runs south, it is mostly wet with standing water. Little to no snow along this stretch to Engine hill area.
Bushwhack pretty straight forward with open glades and easy push through brush. no snow along this route.
Isolation trail is a wet mess with lots of water and beginnings of rotten monorail. Stream crossing is running fast with rocks under water. Some high rocks offer rock hops with long stretches.
Monorail is more consistant with lots of water after stream crossing until Davis Path.
Same conditions along Davis Path but with wet boggy areas with rotten log bridges.
Trail to summit is snow free.
Great day out with Nancy,Billy,and Barb.
