Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: State parks crews are at work on this trail, presumably to mitigate some of the erosion. I noted new rock work in places. There is currently planking and sections of rubber matting in certain areas so they can get a four wheeler up and down the trail. The upper half of the trail has lots of mud and running / standing water. Use caution with footing as many of the rocks are slick. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Sure, I saw a few. 
Bugs
Bugs: Pesky black flies are still pesky. 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Nothing. 
 
Comments
Comments: This trail always feels like cheating, but it's good for when you're short on time and there are some nice viewpoints from the auto road. Aside from the mud and wetness, Rollins is an easy, if rough, up and down. Somewhat hazy but still excellent views. The old cab has been removed from the fire tower in preparation for a new one. Not too crowded today so I hung out on top for a while but finally left when two teenage girls showed up with music playing. :|
