Hiked Upper Loop. It still has a lot of garbage and even signs from an endurance event a month ago all over it. Lot of downed trees. I lost count of how many we climbed over. Missed a turn and had to back track cause a tree had fallen on a sign. The AllTrails app got me back on the trail. Good white blazes on one half of the trail going counter clockwise but the last 1/8 of trail had minimal red emblem blazes. The garbage really needs to be cleaned up. Any future events should require the participants to trek out their litter. Also should note, there is really no scenery on this hike. I only took pictures of the many water crossings. I saw zero people all day, but I went during the week.
