 Trail Conditions
Here is an update on trail conditions:
·         The Yellowstone (# 057) is cleared of downed trees until you reach the Bluebell Pass turn off. Trails are very wet above the Garfield Basin turn off; expect snow on the ground above 9500 feet or higher. River crossings are moderate to high.
·         Uinta Canyon Trail (# 044) is cleared until 1.5 miles past the wilderness boundary. Anything above 10,000 feet is snow covered with rivers running moderate to high.
·         Chain Lakes trail (# 043) is cleared to the wilderness boundary. Trails are dry but snow is visible around the chain lakes area.
·         Rock Creek trail (# 069) is now open and the rock scaling is complete. This trail is cleared 4 miles past the wilderness boundary.
·         The road that leads to the Grandaddy TH is still closed. This area has received a lot of snow the past couple of weeks.
All other trail conditions are unknown, but I would expect the trail conditions are about the same, with rivers running moderate to high and snow above 9500 feet.
