Comments
Comments: As per recent reports, the Hale Brook Tr. is in good shape. Only the slightest amount of slippery mud in just a few places, mostly as you get past the halfway mark to the summit, all easily avoided. Big difference from a week ago is that the hardwoods have leafed out.

I dropped down the Fire Warden's Tr. a bit and then bushwhacked to North Hale. The bushwhack was difficult as the forest is very tight and the ground is littered with many blowdown. I ended up circling east (right) to get around the cliffs, but that may not have been the best choice. I think west (left) would have probably been the better choice. The summit was densely wooded, but I did get out to the cliffs to check out the view. It also appeared to me that there was another ledgy high point just a bit further north which I wanted to check out, but it had taken me longer than expected to get to North Hale and I was pressed for time, so I decided to call it good and leave that for another time.
