Ascent Trip Report

Overall this is a very nice trip. We hiked Left Fork of Maple Canyon then turned off the trail to the benchmark. It was just a spectacular day and the water was running off pretty high and fast. When I hiked the trail at the end of May last year there wasn't even enough water coming down the creeky sections of trail to get up on my boots. This year it was running much higher, which made for an interesting day and wet feet—especially on the way down. There's a very followable trail all the way to the bench mark. Overall it made a nice, easy-going day.
