backpacked from border to hwy 8 Mar 21-23rd. most of trail in great condition! the trail section between south boundary road and Hauser creek was Very brushy, with poison oak growing across the trail. Trail is still passable, however.

Water is plentiful, with all intermitent streams having some flow, and creeks near boulder oaks campground knee deep and too wide to cross sans wet feet.

angry honeybee hive just off trail south of Hauser Mtn; bees chased us for ~150 ft, one of my fellow backpackerws was stung in the throat.

flowers are blooming! it’s a great time to be on the trail!
