Trail in the forest is easy to follow. Once you get above timberline there are rock cairns to follow. Most carins are easily within sight of the next except when crossing a grassy area just east of South Erickson Lake. The trail closure mentioned is primarily for the North Erickson Trail near area of the fire in 2016 because there are many burned trees that have follow on the trail. The Forest Service has started clearing the trail near the North Erickson Trail-head at Smith-Morehouse Reservoir
