Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Part of the trail was literally hiking up a stream but the flow wasn’t too heavy. There were 3 spots where crossing a streams with heavier flow was necessary but there were enough rocks to make it across with dry feet. That said, this could easily change with more rain and snow melt. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Two blowdowns but nothing incontournable.  
Dog-Related Notes

Comments
Comments: We did this trail entirely bareboot but probably could have used the help of micro spikes. Many icy patches on the second half of the trail and very narrow monorail on a steep slant near the summit. A lot of tree grabbing was necessary to stay upright.
