Mt. Cardigan via Manning Trail, Holt Trail, Clark Trail, Cathedral Forest Trail

Date of Hike: Sunday, May 11, 2008

Trail Conditions: Dry ground, mud, small patches of spring snow

Special Equipment Required: None


Road to AMC Lodge recently graded. Also heard the gate to the West Ridge Trail opened within the last two days.

Ascended via Holt - mostly dry, other than a section just before the steeps. The ledge scrambles were all dry. Two tiny patches of snow in between scrambles. A few minor blowdowns above Grand Junction.

Descended via Clark to Cathedral Forest - a few tiny patches of snow below the warden's building, a few small patches of mud, no blowdowns.

Water crossings were no problem.
