Early in the trail, a large dip in the path was full of water. There were old beams and fallen trees pushed in, but they were not secure -- be aware and cautious with your footing. Just prior to the bridge towards Granite Lake, the ground was completely saturated with water - the planks set up for crossing were submerged and loose. Fortunately a previous hiker had set up some rope to hold onto between two trees -- unfortunately, my stride was still not long enough to make it through and I ended up stepping ankle deep in water! Make sure you bring an extra pair of socks!

Parts of the trail were quite narrow through low shrubs. I recommend wearing/having long pants for this section.

Passed a few other hikers but little activity. Beautiful and quiet.
