Carefully consider these factors and the elapsed time period (eg. growing seasons that have passed) since the last Work Report date. FoOT cannot guarantee the condition of the trail at the time you experience it due to ever-changing factors in the forest. This is a challenging wilderness-type trail with mountains, rocks, creeks, rivers, uneven tread and various obstacles.
