Trail mainly clear of snow to beginning of camp zone. At that point there is avy debris which is completely covering trail and camp zone sign. The first site down by creek is snow free as were several of the designated campsites through the zone. Trail from that point is partially snow covered and can be difficult to find through the open areas.
