Comments
Comments: Portions of the trail were dry (scramble ledges dry), but some areas of erosion were wet. Despite the rock work in recent years, the vast majority of this trail is in terrible shape with portions creeping to 30 feet wide with herd paths. This is not meant to be a reflection on any trail adopters...just a reality of how beaten up it is from heavy year round use without necessary mitigation work. Trail is basically in need of a top to bottom sustainable rock build.

Cool temps this afternoon/evening with brisk winds. No snow visible, as Washington was still in the clouds (summit webcam showed snow already). Leaves are still generally green, but the cold overnight temps coming up may have an impact.
