Comments
Comments: Reel Brook and KRT were both mostly dry and pleasant. The often soggy area abutting Harrington Pond was moist but passable while staying dry. The abrupt transition from lightly-used to overused trails from South Kinsman north was striking.
Wonderful day with Chris and Renee on a tougher hike than numbers would suggest. C/2 31/49.
