Comments
Comments: I was able to make good time on Wild River and I am am lucky it has been dry...only got my feet wet while going out a spur to look at water at Perkins Notch. Tufts U. students out backpacking and removed all the cobwebs off the Rainbow Trail for me. The Birch glades and bare bump before Carter Dome are terrfic and Rainbow Trail is now a favorite trail. I went 7/10th past Rainbow Trailhead out and then back on Wild River just because... Great new to me trail day.
