Comments
Comments: Been eyeing this loop for awhile, finally got around to it. 16 miles on paper, but our apps were telling us closer to 17.5 Wonderful and scenic, A-Z was quiet and a bit overgrown, only saw a couple people all morning until we reached the hut, which was mobbed of course. The section of the AT going through Zealand Notch is quite striking and easy walking too...Thoreau Falls were also awesome and worth the .2. The section between Thoreau Falls and Ethan Pond was very muddy with a lot of Black Flies, I think that was the only part of the hike I didn’t like. Thanks again, JoMama for being willing to come along on my road less traveled hikes!
