    One problem with the East River trail is that the bridge over the Opalescent is out, so you would probably have to wade. When I was leaving my campsite at Uphill Leanto a few years ago, I decided to go out that way (partially to check out a campsite for a future trip to Allen), I remember that the parts of the trail was extremely muddy.
    Why are you comparing it with Indian Pass/Cold Brook? I doubt that anyone would list that as the preferred way to Flowed Lands; the most commonly used route is the Calamity Brook trail.
