Comments: A great day out with some of best views I've seen from Signal Ridge and the summit. Clear skies and low humidity left views out for miles and miles. Three trail relocations - at start, about 1/2 mile in and the reroute that is now a short distance after Carrigain brook down the Carrigain notch trail are all easy to find and follow. Makes the trip slightly longer with a bit more elevation gain. Nice dry trails with the exception of the usual stretches of mud in the first mile or so. met 15 out today including a few heading up to camp.
