Mt. Defiance - the loop hike 05/26/19

With a group of friends did the Defiance trail to the summit and came down the Starvation ridge via Warren lake and then to the Defiance trail cut-off back to TH. It was a 14.41 mile and EG of 5350 hike. Only small traces of snow about 1/2 mile to the summit. The defiance trail has been rerouted in a few places and its a lot better then it used to be before the fire. Overall the trail is in great shape. The starvation ridge side is full of poison oak and I would seriously suggest the people wear proper clothing so they don't come in contact with them.
