Comments
Comments: Perfect day! Perfect temps, no bugs. Road walk was not as bad as I expected. Was hoping to slum a ride back to my van in exchange for a cold Baxter IPA but Reel Brook trailhead was deserted and most of the traffic on 116 were motorcycles.
Reel Brook trail is wonderful. Highly recommended, although a little difficult to find.
