Comments
Comments: Parked at glencliff lot, road walk over to tunnel brook trail. What a wonderful and wild section, looks like with recent maintenance. Fresh yellow blazes helped guide us though tje somewhat confusing section of beaver ponds. After a 2 cairmgateway, blazes went away and we're replaced with small Cairns. Some significant mud in portions around beaver ponds. We camped out near first outlook on Benton trail. Spring was great to refill water about 3/4 way up Benton; some leftover monorail and snow patches near the junction with AT (no spikes needed but neat to see snow in June). Picked up some trash at the summit and down to South peak and Glencliff; trail is wet with slippery rocks and also has some running water on portions. Overall stellar trip
