Comments
Comments: This was a more challenging hike than the one done in the morning to Mt. Waumbek. The trail is pretty steep - in 1.7 miles it climbs over 2000 feet. There are an assortment of obstacles including an area of unstable gravel scree, wet slab rock, running water in the trail, and sections with large boulders to pick your way through. Between the first ridge and the summit there was a flat area with several mud and water pools. There was a little bit of decaying monorail easily avoided. Spikes came along for the ride. Poles were extremely useful for the descent the same way.
