Comments
Comments: Glen Boulder Trail was generally dry with a few muddy areas. Ledges/scrambles were mainly dry. Some minor snow in the scrub up high approaching Slide Peak. Davis Path was a mess as noted in other reports. Mud pits with herd paths around them. Really need some new bog brides installed to save the trail from complete destruction. Isolation Trail was a wet rock hop as usual making for slow going. Rocky Branch was wet near the height of land but became dryer as we descended, some mud here and there down low. Wonderful weather in early November with temps in the 60's and blue skies.
