Comments
Comments: Trails had frequent patches of flowing water and mud.

The Loop Trail had deteriorated monorail in large sections especially between the 2 peaks. I wore spikes which helped me stay upright, but many other hikers were bare booting and doing fine. Maybe the last time I use spikes this spring.
