|Water Crossing Notes:
||no big deal; easily rock hopped. But your feet WILL get wet on the trail itself |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Really overgrown. Hard to follow in places, and requires plunging through head high balsams and through hobble bush and some brambles in places. |
||Dear God, the black flies. My ears are swollen to twice their normal size! They besieged me any time I stopped to rest, whether at low elevation or high, and in sunny or shady conditions. So itchy. |
|Lost and Found:
||sunglasses with elastic strap found just south of Stairs Col trail junction. Brought them down and hung them on the trailhead sign at Davis Path parking lot ||
||This trail will chew you up and spit you out at the moment. In good shape up to about the Mt Crawford junction and a little ways beyond. North of Stairs Mt. it gets rough and overgrown. Snow patches start closer to Mt. Davis. They're limited, but it's really rotten and you will posthole into the pits of hell. |
North of Isolation it's SUPER wet and muddy. Be prepared to go calf deep in places.
Nonetheless, any day in the mountains is a good day.
