At a Glance

Current Conditions: 7/23/2017: Visitor reports that trail is in excellent condition, only one small blowdown ~0.5 miles up the trail (before Little River Summit). Snow is melted out. The Lupine are still blooming for a little while longer, with an absolutely stunning fragrance in the last half mile before the summit of Mt Townsend! The trailhead is in good condition, though the road up (after Bon-Jon Pass) is getting to be deeply rutted around 3900' elevation.
