Comments: In hindsight, I went the harder direction. It would have been much easier to go up to Jackson then over to Pierce and Eisenhower, then back down to the notch on Crawford which is such a nice, well-packed, heavily traveled trail. Webster Cliff trail was not that fun due to a lack of traffic and post-holes. The monorail was non-existent in places and you really had to pay attention to where you stepped or you'd be up to your butt in a spruce trap. Jackson-Webster was just slow going and would have been much easier ascending IMO.Lots of hikers out enjoying the spring weather...beautiful day!
