Route: Cotton Creek trail
Posted On: 2017-08-16, By: SnowAlien
Info: Cotton Creek trail has 5-6 creek crossings with water still running high. In several cases logs for crossings were washed downstream. On the way up I couldn't keep shoes dry, on the way out I just hiked in Crocs, so wet feet no matter what. Trail is fairly easy to follow. Many down trees, and still muddy in spots. Higher up in the basin, all the way to the pass, very long, numerous switchbacks, apparently built for cattle.
Route: Texas Creek Trail

Info: Snow free. Lots of downed trees on Texas Creek Trail, which makes for slow going. Water is very high, and there's no good way to cross Texas Creek other than simply walking through it. Count on lots of water and mud.
