Comments
Comments: Ranger Trail was horrible. Muddy down low, then a brookbed at best, cascading set of slabs at worst (frankly a bit dangerous), above the garage. Hard to follow in places above the garage as well. I have no intention of ever hiking this trail again unless it is rebuilt or rerouted.


Lambert Ridge Trail was wet and had some slippery areas, as well as some muddy areas, but it was a dream compared to the Ranger Trail.
