Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Water crossings were a little trickier due to recent rains. The most challenging one was on the Cedar Brook Trail right before arriving at the Hancock Loop junction. The trail continues on for less than 1/4 mile and then we have to cross the same river again. The second crossing wasn't as bad as the first. We noticed on the way back that the water level had risen even more.

Comments
Comments: An absolute great day for a hike. Clear skies and great views. A little chilly but the exertion of the hike kept us warm. Good to have a windbreaker on the summits. Lots on good, friendly people on the trail.
