Comments
Comments: All the trails were wet and muddy in several spots due to recent rain, but my boots gripped well. Some serious maintenance has been going on this year, so the trails are in great shape.

Felt great to do a hike without rain, thunderstorms, or ungodly humidity levels. Best hiking conditions I've encountered in a long time, actually.
