Comments
Comments: Great trails for todays training hike... More weight was added to my LT pack and I did just fine. Webster Jackson was a great mix of ups and downs and water crossings. Lots of roots and rocks to navigate. Jackson Branch added to it with eh ascent of the summit cone... Great scrambles and slabs to hike up followed by a good rest a the summit. Going over to the hut is great with the bog bridges over the mud... Lots of water though so expect to get your feet wet. A rest at the Mizpah hut and then the ascent of Pierce... Ladders to help up the steep and then another good rest at the summit. Rocks and roots down the Crawford path to the Highland Center and my car. All in all another great day on the trails.
