Comments
Comments: Excellent hike of Owls Head. The water has receded substantially from last week and so has the monorail. There is no more than 50 ft left near the summit. Returned via Black Pond Bushwhack and found it saved me 25 minutes hike time.I saw 3 hikers today before exiting Black Pond Trail and another 20 on Lincoln Woods Trail. Great day for this hike.
