Comments
Comments: Fun but wet hike of Mt Isolation with a fellow Gridder.- hoppable water flow on many parts of the trail. Crossings easily hoppable, and surprisingly Davis Path seemed no muddier than it usually is. no views at the summit but light winds kept bugs at bay and made for comfortable hiking. On the return we took the Iso Express which is a great route and looking forward to snowshoeing it this winter. We met 4 others on the way out.
