Parking/Access Road Notes: Parked at Lowe’s Gas Station. It has been closed for a while (just note the advertised gas prices). Called their number and the person who answered said it was fine to park there. Just leave $1 under the office door. Was the first person to park there at 7a. When I returned at 1:30p two more cars were there.

Bugs
Bugs: Pretty breezy at the start so no bugs. Ditto above tree line where it was windy. Wanted to have lunch next to Gray Knob cabin but there was no breeze so the black flies swarmed around me.

Comments
Comments: Aside from meeting one backpacking group heading down I saw no one else all day. The trail starts out with just a slight uphill but soon becomes steeper as you approach the Log Cabin. Some of the ledges on the trail were wet, mossy and very slippery. Obvious bypasses went around those. At the cabin intersection missed the sign indicating continuation of Lowe’s Path - it was located high up on my right – only saw the Cabin Cascades Tr. Sign. I turned left and went by the Log Cabin but soon realized I was headed in the wrong direction. Confirmed this with the GPS. Went back to the intersection and saw the Lowe’s Path sign - its location seemed easy to miss. Partly cloudy and windy above tree-line. Lowe’s Path goes right up close to Mt Abigail Adams summit. There were actually 3 rocky high points in the summit area – two were close together on the same mound and a third on another rock pile close by. The first two seemed closest to the GPS coordinates. The hike was 8.1 miles rt and vertical ascent was a little over 4000 feet.
