I actually don’t know what condition the trail is in because the road is closed. It’s mid April and there was no snow this year. The FS is on top of things as usual.

Much of the trail has been destroyed or neglected due to a fire. The part of the trail that leads to the higher elevation is completely gone. It is fine along the creek and along the road. Consult with the ranger station before backpacking this trail.
