Comments
Comments: We started up Blueberry Ledge and the cutoff very early so I expected that the ledges might not have time to dry out but thankfully everything was dry even though we didn't get much sun today. The ledges are tricky to climb even when dry but I was happy to find that the Rollins trail had a short re-route around the boulder where there used to be a steep drop off. It now goes up above that and they've brushed in the old trail so well it is hard to tell where it was. This will make that section much safer especially in winter. Dicey's Mill had lots of leaves down but they were dry and footing on that trail is good below Rollins so it was an easy hike out.
