definitely recommend this loop in a counter clockwise direction as Emily proctor trail has a lot more slippery rock while cooley glen had a generally smooth and dry foot bed. proctor trail was wet and slick as was the long trail up to breadloaf. much the same over Wilson to Roosevelt with sections of mud in the sags. the highpoint appeared to be a short distance off trail before reaching the viewpoint. north of little hans peak around 3100 or so we set off on the bushwhack to ne Roosevelt. woods were generally open with good going other than for the expected robust undergrowth. mostly ferns, but some sections of hobblebush. a short steep pitch in spruce led up to the recognized highpoint (look up). we held a more northerly line on the return and had even nicer going. back on the long trail the foot bed got smoother on the moderate climb over Cleveland. some steeper going down to the col then more wet muddy trail up to the summit of grant. a couple of nice viewpoints nearby. back at the Cleveland/grant col we enjoyed a nice smooth walk down cooley glen trail. some grown in spots and one Irene ravaged section, but otherwise quite nice. good to get back over to Vermont.
