We did venture through the deadfall in July. We knew it was going to be
tough but took our time and made it through. An "embrace the brutality"
moment. We were heading north so knowing hot showers and warm beds awaited
us in Grand Lake made it easier. At the top of the ridge we found a game
trail that took us west of the offical "trail" and I think helped us avoid
some of the worst of the deadfall.

I think it is time to petetion the Forest Service to clean this up. The
sign posted near Lake Granby says they have not because of the danger of
falling trees. At this point the few trees standing are the live ones so I
don't buy this argument. This would be a great volunteer project for the
CDT Coalition. It is near towns, used by lots and lots of people (no just
CDT hikers) and is the only connecting trail into RMNP west of the divide.

just my 2 cents,
