|Date of Hike:
||Sunday, August 19, 2012|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||There were about 8-10 autos in the Haystack Road lot and along the sides when I arrived at ~ 7:45. |
||Dry Trail, Wet Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable, Standing/Running Water on Trail |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||The 'bushwhack' to avoid the first two crossings isn't very bushwhacky - it is a fairly well defined path and seems like it would be difficult to get lost on it. On descent I didn't even notice the point where I got back onto the official trail.
There were places to rock hop over the third crossing - no major issues.
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||A bit muddy in spots on the North Twin Spur but there are enough rocks to avoid getting dirty...or you can just plow through. Otherwise the trails are in good shape. |
||Saw five goldies today...all seemed to be having fun. |
||Very annoying when passing back through the North Twin outlook below the summit but otherwise no issues. |
|Lost and Found:
||Found a couple of Chap Sticks and an empty bottle of hand sanitizer on the side of the trail on descent. Since I thought it was an odd place to stash odd items I treated these objects as rubbish and packed them out. |
