Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: One crossing of Dry River a mile before Shelter 3 could be difficult in high water conditions. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The Dry river trail has considerable re-routes that are footpaths and not trails. Tough but nothing to major up until Shelter3. Above Shelter 3 the path borders on impassible and difficult to follow due to Blowdowns. There are MANY fallen trees and an unmaintained trail. We had to take our packs off every 10min or so to go under, around, or over trees.

Comments: Dry River Trail to Shelter #3 to Lake of Clouds

The workaround/re-route footpaths this trail has before the Mt Isolation cut-off are not sustainable trails and after a significant rain I think would become washed out. The large blowdown section above Shelter 3 borders on impassible due to trees blocking the path. The only sustained muddy section we encountered was about a mile before Shelter 3.
