Minor Issues
Update
Mostly Dry - The trail is clear and in great shape until 1/4mi or so from the end. At that point the trail is closed due to damage from a previous forest fire. Even though you can't go to all the way to chimney top there's still a great overlook/view at the end and I highly recommend the trail. Just don't be caught by surprise or too disappointed by the closure of the end portion of the trail.
