Did this trail the last week of September and the fall colors were fantastic. The Toutle Trail from the trailhead to the intersection with the Sheep Canyon trail was in good shape and there were some boards across the creek just below Blue Lake. Doing the loop there were several large trees that had come down across the trail, but none of them presented any problem getting around. My track record came to a little over 12 miles. Three miles to the loop and the loop was six miles. Didn't see anyone else on the trail.
