Comments
Comments: From the bike path leading south from the Basin parking lot, we took a left turn onto an unmarked trail which linked to the Liberty Spring trail shortly before the junction with the Flume Slide trail. From there, it's a straightforward uphill hike to the summit. There's some ice on the trail and the crossings still have water flowing. Microspikes are sufficient but I wore Hillsound trail pros just for the extra traction. Nice day out.
