JUNE 2019: The road is clear, although a high clearance vehicle is recommended to get over some of the washouts. There are a few trees down near the beginning of the trail up into the avalanche path, but the new trail is easy to follow and makes the hike much less steep with the switch backs through the meadows and forest. There are some snow patches that cover the trail, but please try to stay on the trail so it gets compacted and more obvious.
JULY 2019: The road has been graded and new directional sign posts have been added. Watch for the last turn in to the parking lot as a new logging road has been built at the junction.
