Didn't make it to the Cumberland Basin trailhead since the road was chewed up (melting snow, slippery mud, large ruts) from the increased trafffic of hunters as it was still rifle season. Did make it to the Twin Lakes trailhead with my 4x4 pickup and took that trail. Hiking involved some slogging through drifted snow but it was not yet knee deep and the trail was still partly visible. Beautiful views of Teocalli Mountain (at 13,208) and surrounding 12'ers. If you wear orange you get some very nice fall hiking in the Gunnison National Forest this time of year.
