Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Not far into the hike there is a section of the trail that has eroded. Its maybe a 6 foot gap now. Much bigger than it was a couple of weeks ago based on previous submissions about this trail. We were able to pass it (stupidly)but it was pretty dangerous and not for novice hikers.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: There were 4 dogs hiking the trail ahead of us and they seemed to do a good job. I wouldn't feel comfortable bringing a dog on this trail though. Rough terrain for their feet and some steep drops.  
Bugs: There were some mosquitoes but we had a strong repellent on and they didn't bother us.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: It rained on our way up and down the cascades and some of the rocks were slippery but we managed just fine. We just had to take it slow. There were also some trees that were down but completely passable. The wooden steps and hand rails were all in great condition. The only part that was really concerning for me was the eroded path. It definitely needs to be fixed.
