Comments: Changed route plans from my normal route as I saw a familiar name in sign in box using Sunset Ridge Tr.. Only chance of meeting him was going up that way and was nice to chat with him. First time on Halfway House Tr. in 15-20 years. Upper half of H H was quite steep and rough. Definetly prefer up Maple Ridge and down Sunset Ridge but an excellent day to be up there, no complaints. Thanks to Katy (GMC caretaker) for the advise, info on trails.
