    Johnson/Resurrection Pass Conditions?

    Has anyone ridden or hiked Johnson and/or Resurrection Pass trails? I was wondering about trail conditions (snow and mud particularly). I would anticipate snow near the passes but thought I would ask. Thanks in advance.

    Johnson is clear and needs to be ridden soon unless you like head high brush than feel free to wait. Russian Lakes is great right now too but the salmon are hitting the river and the brush is growing supper fast. Ressurection is probably still snowy which is fine since the other two trails are better anyway and need to be ridden now where Ress really never gets overgrown.

    Thanks for the data. I totally agree about the vegetation. I will try to get on Johnson within the next week.

    Rode up Devil's Pass yesterday 6/15 and it was clear and dry. Small snow patches near the lake at the top. Not sure how Resurrection Pass has dried out, but it should be snow free with some soft spots I would assume.

    A group of us are doing Johnson's tomorrow as a key-swap, plus a couple of us (myself and another or two) are planning on doing it out-and-back.

    I'm planning to host a Lost Lake on the 1st.

    Rode Cooper to Devils pass trailhead this weekend and it was in pretty good shape with very few people out until we got close to the highway. We plan to do Cooper to Hope this weekend.
