Hiked an out and back from Blue Lake Landing on 3/10/18 for 31 miles total. The trail is still muddy in places from recent rains/flooding. Several stream crossings but only one had to be forded. The others had logs across or could be jumped. Blazes on the gravel road north of the Nelson Ditch shelters have been removed. The new trail follows the river north to Gravel Landing; however, the trail is extremely primitive at this point. Though yellow blazes mark the trail, there has been little clearing of the trail in parts that don’t utilize forest roads.
