Comments: A wonderful hike up to Blueberry. The recent storms have caused some damage notably to Stone House road but also creating some trail erosion. Trail is generally dry until just before the Rattlesnake pool spur where mud and water first begin to appear; they is a fair amount of running wand mud on for about .5 miles after the Rattlesnake pool spur. The worst can largely be avoided by the judicious use of rocks but your boots will get wet and muddy. The trail then transitions and is dry from a bit before the traverse over to the new switchbacks all the way to the summit. Lookout spur was also dry. Terrific views from the ledges on the lookout spur. Even Notch area is always a great place to visit.
