[Cdt-l] Trail conditions--Gila River

The lower Gila (south of the cliff dwellings) is mostly a bushwhack 
these days... there are remnants of trail here & there, I'm told. But, 
it is an amazing place, so not all bad - just depends on what you're 
expecting. The Middle Fork ought to be ok. I'd say don't take my word as 
the final word, but also, don't necessarily listen to the local rangers 
100% either; they tend to have a default attitude warning people away if 
there is any hint of trail damage.
