Comments
Comments: First trip up Edmands this year did not disappoint! Trail is clear until right by the cascade up high. Some monorail from there until treeline, but it’s spotty and can be avoided.

Crawford Path is 98% clear between the peaks, save for a few short areas in the trees.

Coming down Pierce, there is one decently long section of monorail, but it can be straddled. Otherwise Crawford Path was quite wet and muddy (parts of the trail was basically walking in a stream).
