Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Designated parking area for both trailheads. There is a privy (clean and stocked) at the Mt. Osceola trailhead. Both areas can hold at least 10 cars. I accessed these trailheads using Tripoli Rd from the I93 side. Tripoli Rd is paved then turns to a good gravel road passable by any vehicle. Tripoli Rd is closed and gated in late fall and winter.

Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: The chimney on the Mt Osceola trail (after the Osceola summit on the way to the east summit) will pose a major obstacle to dogs. There is a solid herd path to the left of the chimney entrance that would provide a better traverse of this tricky section. 
Bugs
Bugs: None! Suckas!!

Comments
Comments: Busy trail on Mt Osceola! Lots of hikers out enjoying the fine weather and views. There are no blazes on this trail but it is easy to follow. The rocks are prolific on Mt Osceola trail. So slippery... so pointy. The descent took much longer than the ascent because of the rough footing. There is a fabulous view on Mt Osceola. East Osceola has a simple carin designating the summit.

Lots of mud and running water on the trails, but what else is expected after a day of rain?
