Comments
Comments: Lower (shaded) sections of trails were wet and slick. Saw a few falls. Exposed sections nicely dried out. With later start and/or avoiding Sunset for your climb you get much less crowded conditions. Still busy trails but not Lafayette/Lincoln like. Favorite Mansfield loop of mine for many years. Lots of open hiking with views.
