Comments
Comments: Rod agreed to come with me for some new trails and we also did Ike as a buddy 4kr...love that wilderness area for sure and trails were not too bad to follow...Dry River Cutoff at the second crossing did have some flagging to show the way, but one needs to walk up the brook bed a short distance to locate where the trail goes left up the bank and then hooks around to the right immediately..the blowdown patch on Mt Clinton Trail is one of the most tangled I've seen..
