Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails were in good shape, with just a few minor blow downs to hop over. Nothing major. Puncheon on the summit was occasionally rotted, but not an impediment to travel. Ladder on Halfway House trail was in decent shape.

Comments
Comments: Heading up Sunset Ridge trail, "Vermud" is very much the case in sections, but for most of it, you can hop across on rocks and roots well enough. Cantilever rock spur was in decent shape, and the rock itself is stunning. Views were hazy, but you could see a good distance. Caretakers were cheerful and informative. All in all, a good day out.
