Hiked from Mono TH up and over to Indian Creek. Trail is okay to Ogilvy, then gets worse once in the burn zone. You can see the tread but expect to walk through brush and grasses while following the bits and pieces that are left. Look for cairns and flags.

The old camp at Upper Mono was washed away, its gone. But there is a new and improved camp (IMO) just on the other side of the Loma Pelona drainage about 100' above Mono Creek.

From Upper Mono Camp to Indian is more of the same. Washouts, some tread, lots of overgrowth, downed trees - essentially not much of a trail. But if you've gone this far you'll know what to expect - lots of time looking for the trail, some time just walking not knowing where the trail is, and some time hopefully improving what you think is the trail.

I would expect the same on the junction to the Tin Shack. No sign whatsoever of the Caracole Trail.
