Comments
Comments: It was a nice day to hike - the bugs and heat weren't too bad, nice breeze all around (kept the bugs down), the summit views were hazy but view was fine. The summit wasn't too crowded - about 50 people or so. Many came up Glencliff so coming up and down for me wasn't an issue. I only saw 10 people on Beaver Brook. The trail is wet in many places so please take care on the rocks. There's some mud here and there but not a significant concern. If you've never hiked Beaver Brook, it is as advertised - very difficult, especially coming down (treacherous).
