|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||All in all, trails are in the best shape they could be, given the amount of rain and the heavy traffic recently. Below the lower ledges, trails are quite muddy and in some places very wet/slippery -- they're draining as well as possible, though (waterbars are clear and working properly). |
||A new round of black flies out in full force today on the trail between the Croo Bridge and PJ Ledge. Once on the lower ledges and above (summit), they were not an issue. |
|Lost and Found:
||Elizabeth Holt Falls is the best we've seen it in some time -- three distinct channels on the main cascade.|
Lower ledges on the Clark Trail were mostly dry.
Upper ledges and summit were completely dry.
