Comments
Comments: Saw some young guys starting near the beginning of Liberty Springs around 2PM. One of them was wearing Sperry boat shoes and skinny jeans. Given the muddy conditions, I don't think he got very far.

Hikers at the summit told me that ascending Flume Slide Trail was not a smart move, and they regretted choosing that route.
