Comments: Perfect weather for this hike; mid 50's, mild wind, sunny and clear, long distance views. I prefer loop hikes; but in hindsight I wish I had out and backed to Lincoln or Little Haystack to double my time on the ridge and take preferable Old Bridle route down as well. All trails very dry except for Falling Waters when near the brook crossings. Several happy hikers out today.
