      Clear of snow. Great trail run/hike from Cheakamus lake trail. Got to cinder cone flats without any snow. Damp trail conditions past the campground.

       July 18, 2020, hiked and ran in from Cheakamus lake trail. Really good condition with one or two sections in the first kn where the trail was eroded from runoff snow line is around cinder cone flats. Trail gets pretty wet about a km above campground.
