Ingalls Creek Trail Report 6/27-6/29

Trail is in overall fantastic condition. There are occasional blowdowns and areas of overgrowth, but the trail is easily followed all the way to the base of Stuart Pass. Snow fields present themselves and the trail is difficult to pick up for the last ascent. No problem though, as there are many off trail routes. Hiked 8 miles the first day, splendid campsites abound on Ingalls Creek. On day 2, hiked 15 miles to the pass and back. A glorious day of incredible views. And finally, 8 miles out this morning. Only 1 family entered the trail today. Go now while it’s bug free, wildflowers are abundant, and the weather is perfect! Final note, we did encounter 2 snakes on the trail, and a turkey vulture eating a dead snake!
