||Great day for a hike up Washington. Jewell trail was wet and soggy, but not muddy to the point it caused issues hiking. Just be careful on the rocks. Trail dries up above treeline and was bone dry all the way to the Gulfside trail. The Jewell trail isn’t as well marked as it could be in the alpine zone; could see where people might inadvertently venture off the trail. Could use some more blazes and better placed cairns. |
Gulfside trail was clear and dry from Jewell to Trinity Heights and same for Trinity Heights. Ran into a thru hiker on his way to Maine.
Summit was packed which was expected for the 4th observance. Wish they’d make a hiker only line for the sign but it is what it is. Overall great day, no rain and probably the best day I’ve spent on thee summit of Washington.
