Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Most trails are in good condition. The Avalon Trail footing is much improved from trail crew efforts. The exception to the good trail conditions is the Willey Range Trail especially on the south side of Mt Willey. There are stretches of trail with loose rocks that are easily slipped on. There are washed out eroded spots. The ledges can be challenging when wet or icy. By-passes have been created to avoid these ledges. The wood stair cases are becoming weathered although they still have integrity. Hikers that are queasy with heights or have balance difficulties should avoid the south side of Mt Willey. I would rate the Willey Range Trail on the steep south side of Mt Willey as the worst condition in the White Mountains. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw dogs on Mt Jackson. The south side of Mt Willey may be difficult for some dogs.
