Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: First water crossing, where there should be a suspension bridge from years before, is a little sketchy with all the snow melt. Head left of the trail and cross on a wooden board is my recommendation. A few minor crossings after until the trail becomes a water crossing itself 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Plenty of blowdowns on this trail! Trail maintainers have their work cut out. All are duckable or jumpable  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: A few pups and their owners without proper gear gave up when the monorail appeared  
Bugs: Black flies are back! Bring your head net! No ticks 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Right at 4000 feet, the disaster of a rotting monorail appears. trickling water becomes a theme through the upper two thirds of the hike, and is occasionally a small river from snow melt- be careful, wear water proof boots and change your socks. Rock spikes needed for the off and on again monorail. Just before tree line, snow and water disappear for a gorgeous alpine zone. 360 degree views and a clear view of George! I’d not recommend descending edmands it took toooo long with the slippery rocks and I fell once or six times. Wait a few weeks! Other hikers said ammo is still a mess
