|Date of Hike:
||Friday, June 7, 2019|

||Dry Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Standing/Running Water on Trail, Mud - Significant, Snow/Ice - Small Patches |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Rock hoppable |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Unmitigated erosion on all three trails. Blowdowns north of the hut and on Crawford Path. I took one out by hand on Crawford Path (about a 30 second job) because a herd path had formed around it. |
||Some black flies down low, but otherwise minimal. |
|Lost and Found:
||Loop is very muddy. Some novelty snow above 3,800 feet, all but two or three patches are avoidable, and those are flat and only a few dozen feet long.|
Lots of running water and mud on Crawford Path and Webster Jackson Trail. Sad to see how much worse those trails are getting each year due to erosion and trail creep, but good to see the new steps continuing to go in on Crawford.
Pooled water on Webster Cliff Trail and some submerged bog bridging.
Really nice blanket of diapensia on Pierce right now.
