Comments
Comments: Lots of mud on Bicentennial! Pine Hill was also very wet and filled with leaves. Mountain House and Loop were mostly dry. Nothing major if you have hiking shoes on. Trails were not as crowded as initially expected based on the number of cars in the parking lot. Giant road sign cautioned people to practice social distancing. Passing people at a distance wasn't a problem. The muddier areas happened to also be more crowded, so we did a lot of bushwhacking to avoid both.
