Comments
Comments: I parked at the Downs Brook Trailhead as a bail out option, and to break up the road walk. I saw maybe 6-8 people on the Rollins Trail, and the same on the Kate Sleeper Trail, but by the time I arrived at the Mount Tripyramid Trail there were many people. Did enjoy a nice chat with a few folks around lunchtime at the South Tripyramid summit.

The trails are in decent shape and the foliage is beginning to pop. The Kate Sleeper Trail is a good one (except as noted below). Sabbaday Falls was a happening place for sure with lots of tourists and leaf peepers. I'd never seen the falls and it is definitely worth checking out.

Someone was kind enough to drop a deuce in the traveled portion of the Kate Sleeper Trail. I've heard that this was happening. I'd like to know the thought process, "Hmmm? Where should I take a dump? Somewhere in this enormous wilderness area, or right here in the trail where everybody is walking?" It just doesn't make sense. I do believe that not pinching a loaf in the trail falls within the realm of common knowledge. Maybe the person is still potty training, and not making poopy in their pants was actually some level of achievement? Is it too much to ask that people not crap in the trail? Please.
