Comments
Comments: Mt Kinsman Trail was mixed to start dry and damp. Some minor mud down low and on the Bald Peak Spur. High up the trail got very wet and muddy with slippery roots and rocks. The Kinsman Ridge Trail was mixed as well with plenty of mud and some slick ledges. Rain was threatening all day but we beat it mostly. Got caught in some showers for the last mile or so. The little bit of rain did knock lots of leaves out of the trees. Foliage is getting better but still not at peak.
