Comments
Comments: Lincoln Woods to 13 Falls tent site, Lincoln Brook trail around north side to summit path, long walk back to Lincoln Woods.

LONG couple of days. 25.6 miles total by gps. Thirteen Falls tent site was beautiful but crowded.
Trail looping around the north side of Owls Head back to the summit path was super nice. Some views of Lafayette and Lincoln from the bog at the headwaters of Lincoln Brook. Beautiful up there and secluded.
The slide was sketchy but short. Easier than I expected. No views from Owls Head but hey... 18/48
The mosquitoes on Lincoln Brook between the railroad bed and the summit path are no joke right now. We exhausted our deet supply. Super long walk back but the last 3 miles are flat.
Water note: don’t think we ever went more than a half mile without finding great water sources. Bring a filter and a bottle or two. Don’t bother packing in any more than that.
