Comments: Little River impassable by our standards (we got a late start so did not venture too far down or up from river crossing but nothing we did explore was passable—snow melt plus recent rain seems to have significantly increased Little River flow in the last few days).

Spur trail from Lady Slipper Ln was fine, but parts were quite muddy. North Twin was mostly clear, snow/icy areas mostly passable bare boot. We donned spikes for a stretch but didn’t bother putting them on for our return trip. Monorail is dissolving and unstable. Imagine it’ll be largely gone by end of the week. Little River was too high to rock hop safely so we turned around. 7.5ish miles out and back. Lots of lessons learned on this trip! We’d read several multi-peak reports that included N Twin but didn’t consider how much conditions might change in just a few days re: water level. We did see someone hiking in the opposite direction and were a bit mystified as to where and how he crossed!
