      The switchbacks had a decent amount of mud. Once you got up past the rock chair lookout it was a lot drier. The first part of the down still has snow on it but the rest is mostly dry. The short climb back to the start was fairly muddy

      The first 100m or so from the parking lot is pretty muddy. The climb after is dusty. Flow section is tacky till you get to the short climb up to open area. It was really muddy and water flowing on the trail. From there it is mixed, some nice tacky sections, puddles, dry sections.
