Trails

Date of Hike
Date of Hike: Wednesday, June 10, 2020
Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Rapid Stream Road is rough but passable. I parked before the two bridges and walked the 0.6 miles of road to the trailhead. However, this was unnecessary. The road after the bridges is no worse than the road before the bridges, maybe a little better. Most cars should be OK to the trailhead if you take it easy. There is a small parking area and room on the roadside, but no other cars on a weekday. 
Surface Conditions
Surface Conditions: Dry Trail, Mud - Minor/Avoidable

Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: All rock-hoppable, though at a few of them it is worth scouting around for the best location. The first real crossing, a few minutes in from the start, has some logs that you can walk on if you have good balance. I also found a rock-hop location just upstream. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The trail is in good shape and well-maintained. It is very well marked with blue blazes, and cairns above treeline. A few blowdowns, all easy step-overs or duck-unders. There are some narrow trail sections that could use brushing out at some point, but OK for now. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes:

Comments
Comments: This is a great hike, especially after you break out of the trees. There is a good long stretch of climbing through beautiful open alpine landscape and vegetation, with excellent views. Then panoramic views from the summit. Just wonderful.
