Comments
Comments: This is a very nice trail with a very steep section before the 1st ledges. I really enjoyed the changing forest settings on my journey to the peak. The peak was amazing with 360 views and the landscape was on fire with foliage. Beautiful blue sky day with high clouds, all summits were in the clear but the crockers and saddlebacks..... interesting. I hope this trail is packed out in the winter because I’d love to snowshoe up it..... had summit to myself for over an hour, didn’t start seeing people until my way down.... “ The Cave “ is worth checking out.... it was fun.
