Comments
Comments: I decided to get an early start (3:30 am) and hike Lafayette and Lincoln in a way I never had. The Greenleaf Trail was very wet the entire way although I did not find it very slippery. At the hut I put on gloves, hat, jacket and headed up to a cold and windy Lafayette in the clouds. Strong winds from the west all the way to Lincoln and back. This time Lafayette was clear with stunning views. The Garfield Ridge to Skookumchuck was amazing. I could see north to the Presidentials and all the way west to Camels Hump and Mansfield in Vermont. Both ridge trails were dry and in good shape. Upper quarter mile or so of Skookumchuck and Lower mile and a half were very wet and muddy. This trail is easy on the feet and a nice walk in the woods. I cut over to the bike path back to a packed Tramway parking lot. This was the first time hiking these peaks that I did not see a single person on hiking trails. Beautiful, clear, cool, bug free day.
