Muddy, Fallen Trees - Hiked the North loop on 5.19.18...there are some major issues: 1) at least 30 trees down across the trail...some small...most not so small 2) At least 3 places where the trail was on the edge of a fall-off or bank it has washed out or slump down the bank...two were easy enough to deal with...the third (near tar hollow road) added an element of scrambling up a mud embankment. 3) places where there are just no visible blazes...if not for gps it would have been a crap shoot 4) the entire western side of the loop has been bulldozed during spring '18 and the dozer line doesn't 100% follow the trail...combined with issue three it makes for some very frustrating searches for the trail. But worse yet the in some places the dozer did not cut any switch backs or erosion prevention features and the operator clearly had stones of diamond....long story long expect some 45 degree climbs and ascents straight up and down a highly eroded dozer track with washout ruts multiple feet deep. final note: trail signage lists the mileage as 8 miles for the north loop, and while that may be true as the crow flies; my garmin fenix 5 tracked it as 13+ (hiking partner recorded similar with hers), while I am sure there is some standard noise in there I would plan for a hike longer than 8.
