Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Trails are in great shape, in particular given the amount of rain over the past few days. Trails are draining nicely -- waterbars are clear and doing their job. Some muddy patches and areas of standing water (the usual few, but far fewer than even a few years ago -- some great work has been done to alleviate this), but not that bad. Holt-Clark Cutoff still has a few small snapped saplings hanging over the trail -- could be cleared easily with a handsaw. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes:  
Bugs: A few black flies -- only an issue when stopped for more than a few minutes.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Elizabeth Holt Falls is quite fine -- even a bit cascade-y -- given the recent rain.

Lower ledges on the Clark Trail were pretty wet and slippery heading up -- water is flowing freely across them.

Upper ledges and summit were dry.
