Ascent Trip Report

Stepped off around 6:30 am like usual. I was a unsure whether the trail to the summit would be clearly marked but it was. They have it marked Old Nye Ski Trail or something similar. The trail conditions were extremely muddy and based on what I read it was par for the course. The river crossing was fairly simple but I walked around the corner and found a some rocks to jump across on. I was able to keep a steady hike going while ascending and the wet areas were easily navigable. I chose to hit up Nye first and it's a pretty quick jaunt from the intersection. Unfortunately there's not much of a look out but the clouds covered the summit either way. The same went for Street. Overall, It was a fairly nice hike even with both peaks being void of any type of view. If I was to do this again it would be a set I would do for a weekend hike. I don't typically hike on busy days because I like solitude but if I was going to, this would be it. I doubt many people hike Nye and Street for leisure. I'm assuming it's mostly 46 pursuers. One other tip: I would suggest wearing a full hiking boot due to the mud. I was covered!
