|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||No problems with bugs for the entire hike until I got back to the parking lot at about 8:30 a.m. Lots of mosquitos in the parking lot. |
|Lost and Found:
||Trail is mostly dry at lower elevations. Ledge sections were wet. Did not encounter any significant mud until approaching the summit of Osceola. Muddiest places were in the low lying areas between the summits. I opted to take the bypass of the chimney on the descent, but did take the chimney on the way back. |
I encountered approximately 35 or more hikers on my descent - all before 8:30 a.m. Holy Moly! The parking lot was packed when I got back, with overflow parking onto Tripoli Road. I will say that for the most part everyone on the trail was making an effort to social distance.
