Bugs

Comments
Comments: This hike gave me number 12 for 52 With a View, and number 11 for NH48. It was a beautiful weekday to hike. Plenty of solitude and space to be had. The trail grade is very gradual throughout and rocky in parts, but nothing bad at all. The two summits offer up some amazing views and a great perspective of the Northern Presidentials. There is a trickling spring about half way on the way out to Waumbek, or about .5 miles before Starr King summit. This helped me filter water on my hike today and save some weight in the pack. Very beautiful mountains, forest, and trail all around.
