Comments
Comments: Summer conditions on all of these trails now. Still some running water and mud in spots but overall most trails are in great shape. Brookside and Fallsway are really nice alternatives to Valley Way, some nice cascades and falls. Much better weather than expected, not too crowded, and some undercast too. Nice to run into Brenda and her Katahdin crew!
