Deeks Peak west ridge trail in good shape. I spent a few hours rerouting and cleaning out the bushy exit just before the alpine ridge. Had surprisingly good views, but a dead camera battery. Start about 10 min after main trailhead, indistinct trail to left labeled "old bypass". It isn't great, but there is enough flagging to follow the trail up or down. Way nicer than the lake trail with at least half a dozen nice viewpoints. btw,gate was open at Porteau.
also mushrooms/fungi galore.
