Comments
Comments: I originally intended to go up and down via Greenleaf but switched to Old Bridle for the descent, as Greenleaf was steeper and rockier than anticipated. Old Bridle has its own steep and rocky sections, however, and I don't think I saved any effort by walking the extra 2+ miles. I followed the Pemi only around the west side of Profile Lake; otherwise the bike path was more pleasant (despite significant uphill) after walking on rocks for much of the day. The Greenleaf hut was closed, except for the bathrooms, as renovations of some sort seemed to be underway (water was available).
