Milky WayGoodTrail Reporter Paul, 4:17: On the way up there were maybe 3-4 very short sections of mud. 2 you could avoid by staying to the sides of the trail. 1 you could avoid by simply dismounting and taking a step over it (also was on the uphill so wasn't inconvenient to dismount and had good place right after to get back on the bike). The last section of mud you couldn't avoid but was literally less than 1/2 ft. long. So it didn't get any mud on your tires minus a maybe 1 inch strip of mud/water (nothing sticky). No snow on trail.All updated/confirmed 4.22

Lower Colorado Trail to Gudys Rest (Junction Creek)FairTrail Reporter Robert states on 4.24: The trail right before the bridge is still a bit of snowpack and the trail itself is mostly a stream. After the bridge, the first two switchbacks are under snow. A bit after that there is one downed tree across the trail.
