Comments: Wonderful day for a hike. Got to the trailhead around 7:15 and there was plenty of parking. From the dew on the cars, look like most of them were over nighters from the hut. Water crossings were easily managed. Mud was problematic at times, but nothing I haven't seen before. The hut was a nice place to refresh and sit down for a little bit. Met some AT hikers and dropped off some oranges for a little trail magic. Would definitely do this hike again.
