What a long day but amazing weather. Lost the trail on Black Pond Bushwhack several times but gaia gps was very helpful getting us back on track. Sections of significant mud here and there through the trails but generally avoidable. Saw 5 on the way up and down many more going to the falls or going to camp around Owls Head. Glad we chose to descend on Brutus's Bushwack- a bit easier on the knees!
