|Lost and Found:
||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!
