      Super dry and some steps at the switchbacks have worn away making the steps significantly deeper and rutty. Exercise caution at trail edge where the path is loose in some spots.

      Trail running pretty sandy, especially on some of the exposed, tight corners. Watch out for very loose spots especially if you take a line along the edge of the trail. Creeks are flowing nicely for some cool down moments.
