||Manning Trail, Holt Trail, Clark Trail, Holt-Clark Cutoff (Cathedral Forest Trail)|
|Date of Hike:
||Tuesday, May 16, 2017|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Dry Trail, Wet/Slippery Rock, Standing/Running Water on Trail, Mud - Significant |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Bridged or rock hoppable. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Some stepovers on Holt Trail, including one or two large ones. The brookbed portion below the first scrambles needs work...water is cascading down the trail and there are not enough blazes, so prominent herd paths are forming. White blazes (not sure if these are faded yellow) on the ledges are also inadequate. One ledge area has prominent herd paths forming on the sides because there are no blazes visible. |
||Some black flies, but not bad if moving today. |
|Lost and Found:
||Trails were snow/ice free. Some wet spots in the lower elevations, including a rock staircase that has water running down it. Holt Trail has lots of wet ledges. One tiny area of snow off to the side of the trail, which will probably be gone tomorrow. Clark Trail had a lot of mud.|
Lots of wildflowers in bloom.
