Comments: Just a quick write up as I saw about ten posts in the 4k groups. All trails listed in great shape, nothing of note. Little mud, to be expected this time of year.

The third crossing of Little River was still indeed high as of Sunday, 7-29-2018 but surely not impassible. I hadn't done it since last fall and the Halloween storm definately rearrainged the crossing a bit. There is a potential path, if you are coming up from the trailhead to the left about 10 feet with some rocks that might be hoppable, but I didn't want to give a series of five rocks that much credit. I chose to take my pants off and walk through basically on a b line from the sign to where the trail dies into the river. Good footing underneath the water, I am 5'3 and it was about to my knees for a gauge.

There was a group of six people who spent about twenty minutes trying to figure a way to cross it -- you are going to get wet, atleast in the next few days, just bring water shoes, sandals, or take off your pants and fjord it!
