Comments
Comments: With the early start, Marty and I beat the crowds on OBP, which we ascended. Saw only handful of hut customers descending while we were going up. A dozen or so people on Lafayette but the crowds really started when we were descending Falling Waters. There easily were 300 or more people doing this loop, and a lot of large groups. Made descending tedious. A lot of people seem to have no idea of how to share the trail with hikers going in the other direction.
