Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Lot half full at 7:30. Parking was well down the road when I returned at 2:15. Tripoli Road is open and in good shape (at least from 93 to the TH). It looks like a couple of trees came down across the road recently but those were taken care of. Had not hiked from this trailhead for a few years and the new toilets were nice!

Comments
Comments: Changing conditions. Some ice/frost above 3800 feet (approximately). I carried spikes and used them briefly while descending Osceola en route to East. Snow/frost melted from trees and made for a wet descent. A lot of leaves on the ground so the bottom part of the trail was somewhat slippery.
