reporter Trail is clear of deadfall. Standing water at the beginning and end of the sections, take it slow and you won't get too muddy!. Otherwise pretty...

 It's too late now, but Sidewinder was originally just from Rusty Muffler to above the Rusty Grate to the Junction with Tripod. Tripod was the original trail up to, well, to the Tripod lookout. Everything else came after that. Somehow this was changed in the last couple of years so that Tripod only starts at the junction with Rainbow.
