Comments
Comments: Trails were wet to start and with the leaves now coming down making for some tricky footing in places. A couple larger mud pits where the DBT turns away from the river the first time. The steeper sections were a bit tricky with wet rocks, leaves and roots. We arrived at the summit in a cloud so no views today. Decided to skip Jennings due to no views. I will be back to get the views along with Jennings. Trails started to dry out a bit down low on our way out. Nice, warm October day.
