There are several spur trails and social trails off of this main path. Would be a good area for some definition work.
The approach from where it turns off the Clamshell approach trail. Moderate grade.
The section of trail from the Mitchell Flats turnoff to Clamshell Cave area
Mostly flat, some braiding
Super steep approach. Will be bad if the boulder ever becomes popular. It is difficult to follow in the low section(talus and trees) and already beginning to erode the upper meadow.
Steep from road, then flat. Could use some definition and some steps. Erosion is 2/5
Pretty flat but area is popular. There are a few landings that could be improved to make the area more sustainable.
