    Weather was perfect just a little snow on some sections. Eight stream crossings were not too bad.

    The weather for Saturday looks great with temps in the 50's. There may still be snow/ice on the trails and muddy conditions. In the first couple of miles there is a 1600 foot climb and there are 8 stream crossings. Make sure you bring a change of shoes for the end of the hike.
