Comments
Comments: Weather forecast proved wrong. Only a brief shower at the beginning of the hike then dry and overcast the rest of the hike but very humid – cool and breezy on the ridge. Glad we did a clockwise hike – climb up Mt. Avalon was steep with one section of rocks to pick thru. It was much easier descending AZ trail from Mt. Tom. Willey Range trail between Willey and Field summits was the most challenging with a narrow trail in need of brushing in places and wet slippery roots and rocks. Stats: 9.6 miles total, vertical rise: 3588, descent: 3497. Total time: 7:27. Started at 9a, on Mt. Field at 11:30a for a little lunch, left there at 11:45p, on Mt. Willey at 12:45p , Mt. Tom at 2:49p and back at trailhead at 4:30pm.
