Trail description:Backpacked from 3Falls to Lily Meadows the weekend of April 1 & 2, 2017.

WATER! North Fork Lockwood Creek is flowing as is seldom seen. So nice to see. The road between 3 Falls and the falls has recently been bladed, so smooth sailing there. Some brush and a few trees down between falls and just upstream from Lily Meadows, but nothing difficult to navigate.

North Fork Lockwood Trail Survey - 04-11-2015 - by Craig R. Carey
Link: North Fork Lockwood Trail
Date: 04-11-2015
Surveyor Name:Craig R. Carey
Trail description:Trail in fine shape by LPNF standards, but could use some minor brushing at crossings above falls and there's some failing cribwall at the south end of the meadows (I am organizing a Scout service project for the Fall to address).

Water is scarce; we were able to filter from a mucky stretch of the main spring below camp, but I can't imagine that will last much longer.
