One last hike before the hurricane. After spotting a car at the Mt. Osceola Trail trailhead, we headed to the Livermore lot and took the Greeley Ponds Trail from the Livermore Trail. The grades were generally gentle and the footing decent. Excellent views from the ponds. The Mt. Osceola Trail was steep as usual to East Osceola, and rough as usual for the last mile or so to the Mt. Osceola parking lot.
