Comments: Lincoln Woods, Black Brook, Lincoln Brook, Brutus

Lincoln Brook is not passible now. I walked up and down the river banks to no avail. The only way to cross is wading and hiking with wet boots and socks for 10 miles. Even if you do its dicey with solid moving water. It snowed all day today so there is about 4 inches of fresh snow towards the top. Because of the river crossing it was closer to do the slide which had snow and a little ice but would have been awful going down so did the Brutus Bushwhack on the way down. Much better but both bushwhacks required GPS to find the trail in parts. PSA: wait until it warms up and bring crocs. Found a hiking companion today on the trail who was not willing to let the river defeat us to which I wouldn't have attempted solo, so kudos and thanks.
