Comments: The Galehead hut is buttoned up tight, so no water, toilet or snacks there. Plan accordingly. Garfield spring is still flowing. As of last Sat, you may top up there. Osseo seemed extra dry. The 2 usual streams higher up on the Bondcliff Trail are dry.

If starting at LW, bring enough water to get to Garfield Spring. From Garfield Spring, be able to carry enough till you are 3/4 of the way out on the Bondcliff Trail

The entire loop was generally a crowded. Lots of hikers and campers
