Notes: Trail Reporter Baker says: This report is from 6/16/2020 from the Lizard Head Wilderness. Cross mountain trail good condition a few trees across the trail. Lizard Head trail good condition with a few trees across the trail. The creek crossing near the intersection of the Rock of Ages trail is a challenge, I found a snow bridge across the creek, with out it it would be a hazardous crossing.The high alpine is just starting to green up a bit. The upper part of the Rock of Ages trail still has lots of snow on it to the Mount Wilson saddle.
