    Fourmile Trail to is clear to the Fourmile Falls, stream crossings aren't bad. Opal Lake Trail is clear to Opal Lake, stream crossings aren't bad. Weminuche Trail is clear at least 10 miles in, East Fork of the Weminuche Creek is running high but there is a log jam just downstream that will get you across with care. Divide Lakes is clear to the lake. West Fork Trail is clear until 4.5 miles, at which point the trail is buried under tremendous avalanche debris. Lower Treasure Trail is open from the East Fork Valley, but the upper trailhead is inaccessible since Wolf Creek Road is still closed.

    All of the local forest service roads are open at this time with the exception of Wolf Creek Road (FR725), Falls Creek Road (FR039), and East Fork Road (FR667), which is closed at mile 6 due to high water crossings (Silver Falls is not accessible). Trails with river crossings are still difficult due to high water. Snow drifts and downed timber cover the spruce/fir forest trails above 10,000 feet. Trails in the ponderosa pine and mixed conifer are dry.
