Nice forest and some views on top. This would be a good offseason peak when it the washout is dry. I'm surprised the NPS doesn't build a more long-term detour for the trail. Perhaps they feel the slope is not stabilized yet and a trail above or below could be wiped out anyway.
This is a great trail... except for the landslide traverse. Some workers had "repaired" the path through the traverse earlier during the year, but it is only a matter of time before Mother Nature completely reclaims the slope. Paul and I were able to walk across the traverse, while Kevin had to use his hands. The views from the summit cabin are great to the east and south.
