Comments
Comments: It was a long, hot day, but the views of the Presi Range on the summit were worth it. The steepest part of this hike comes in the first 1.5 miles which is nice but it makes for a bit of slog at the end of the long out and back hike. Saw a couple of signs of moose activity on Rocky Branch near Engine Hill but didn't come across any. Overall great hike with a sense of being in the middle of nowhere - summit was a bit busy considering the few people we encountered on trail.
