Comments
Comments: Overall a great hike on very dry trails. Flume slide trail quite easy for first 2.5 miles then a few very challenging sections last mile up the slide where even a minimal trickle in a few spots made footing a challenge for 2 of the 5 in our party but we all got up and enjoyed the views at both peaks with incredible views of 4 different thunderstorm systems to the south and west of us. Heard the thunder and saw the lightning in the distance but fortunately it never got directly over us between 7am and 5pm. Would caution anyone from doing the Flume slide if it has rained within the last 24-48 hours and has not had a chance to runoff and dry.
