Southeast Ridge Trail from Matterhorn Trailhead was in excellent shape with plenty of water available and good trail markings throughout. The only marking issue was the first split (veering east and ascending partway up a slope just after leaving the trailhead) where the sign omits Wetterhorn for some reason. A kind soul hand-carved Wetterhorn onto the sign so it shouldn't be a problem but it isn't as obvious as it could be.

The road to the Matterhorn Trailhead was rough but fine in a 4Runner and we saw a Subaru Outback parked in the camping area near the trailhead. Camping sites at the trailhead were in good shape.
