Oct.2021:  Many trails burnt by 2020 Dolan wildfire. (Burn area shown as overlay in interactive map.)  Much burned hot and now un-attractively barren with fallen debris.  "Satellite" background shows current landscape with presence/absence of green.  Paucity of post-fire trail reports there makes Trail Conditions Map unreliable in spots, check trail reports for details.
