Comments
Comments: with all the recent rain i expected the trail would be muddy and i wasn't disappointed. but it was not nearly as bad as it might have been. very mixed trail conditions. miles of nice dry footbed. miles of hopping from wet slippery rock to wet slippery rock to avoid massive amounts of mud and water. there are lovely views of the rocky branch river from the isolation trail; it is really pretty. darkening clouds on the summit made me decide not to fly my kite while i relaxed there. only a few sprinkles on the way out. conditions change rapidly; if a lot of rain falls tomorrow as predicted, there could be a lot more mud and water. another great day out on the trail
