Comments
Comments: Biggest hazard/annoyance was mud in pockets throughout the trail. So be prepared to get your shoes wet and muddy. Some monorail between Mt. Osceola and East Osceola, but mostly stable or avoidable. Really lovely hike. Fantastic views from the top of Osceola. The stretch between the two peaks is very steep and difficult at points, but really fun.
