Comments
Comments: The first half of the hike was on dry terrain. On the way up, I missed a turnoff and stayed on a logging road until it rejoined Blueberry mountain trail. The 2nd half alternated constantly from ice/snow to bare rock. There were a couple of spots with two inches of standing water on the trail (on the rocky areas, so no erosion). Trail markers were rare at times, but the side path leading to the summit was well marked by cairns. Only crossed one group of three hikers all day.
