Comments: Excellent loop over Webster and Jackson. Only saw a few small groups of hikers here and there but otherwise it was relatively quiet on the trails. The sign at the junction of the Webster Branch and the Webster Cliff Trail has become very faded and people have scratched in some misleading directional arrows. Take care with your map here and you shouldn’t have a problem! Once leaving Jackson, the Jackson Branch is much harder to find than the continuation of the Webster Cliff Trail (AT) from the summit. If we’d come up the Jackson Branch we would have had no problem, but if you’re coming from Webster be sure to look down for a big cairn and continue that way as the blue blazes won’t appear on the trees for at least a quarter mile. There are some blue blazes painted on the rocks but they’re faded and tough to see. The rest of the loop is straightforward and easy to follow.
