Any beta on the condition of the Sky High Trail (via Fish Creek), i.e., any special equipment needed/advisable at this time? I am planning on doing the trip May 21. Also, any beta on water just below the Mineshaft Flat campsite? The last info on the Interactive Map (which is an awesome addition, by the way) is from 10/2021. Thanks for any info!
The Sky High Trail is no problem following but just hasn’t had a trail crew on it in a while.
The Mineshaft Flat spring is year around except possibly in very dry year and very late summer. The spring is located 1/4 mile passed the campground and slightly off trail. Sometimes there is a rock pile noting where the spring trail is. If trouble look in the green areas near the trail and listen for water trickling.
