    I donít remember. Are there any water crossings or water sources on the way up to Mt. Flume ?

    It's within earshot of a stream for the first 2 miles. You'll have to go off trail 100-200 feet and drop 50ish feet to access it.

    " It's within earshot of a stream for the first 2 miles. You'll have to go off trail 100-200 feet and drop 50ish feet to access it."

    After the close approaches to the stream right near the start, there is fairly easy access at around 1800-1810 feet, then decent access in various spots through about 2000 feet. After that the bank becomes appreciably steeper and more of a fun mini-adventure until about 2400 feet when the rock steps at a sharp right hand turn take you completely up and away from the stream.

    With the ongoing rain there are going to be some puddles. For the non-sqeemish, thereís actually a tiny mud puddle right in the wood steps deep enough to filter from, if Iím remembering correctly. Lasts a day or so after a good rain. First come first served.
