Comments: Awesome day on the trail with Ben and Doug B. We avoided the crowds with a hike to the 'lesser' peaks on the 4th of July weekend. Great to run into Norm and company on the summit of Flume! We did a bushwhack from the bike trail to the 'corner' junction with the Liberty Spring trail to save about 0.6 miles each way, then another short bushwhack on the return to Liberty from Flume to avoid the ledges which were somewhat wet and challenging today.
