1). First 10 miles are burn zone, dead trees everywhere, one of which fell 100 feet from us.
2). Trail disappears in the mile 3-5 range, gone.
3). IMPORTANT. 3 miles of trail from confluence of big cottonwood and wolf creeks to Slide Rock Saddle are CLOSED. We bushwhacked up that section, overgrown, trail adjacent to creek is often completely washed out. Dangerous. At the top, we found a new sign saying trail closed, impassable (referring to where we just came from). Whoops.

The trail has been rerouted around the closed section which adds several miles and a lot more elevation than reported. 21mi — 6h 00m
