Anybody know of current conditions on the trail, as of 08/29/16?

Last week it was in great shape. The creek crossings were nothing to worry about and not too many people. It did hail a couple times as it is getting colder and we had some rain. There’s also this page to post trail conditions –


Thanks for the reply.
