Comments
Comments: 100% miserable humid death out there today. While it is no fault of the trail and/or mountains I 10/10 do not recommend this steep and fussy trail when you are already slightly mad about the weather. KRT to Cannon is (as it always is) steep AF. Never gets flatter, RUDE. Then, the cannonballs punch you again, and again, and again and the mud tries to swallow your dog in one bug gulp. The saving grace was watching people scream and run away from the big swimming leeches at lonesome lake (never gets old!!!) and we were about *this close* to crashing the wedding at the hut, but we were much too gross/covered with mud/gross flies/sweat. I plan to give this hike .5 stars on all trails, and request that "someone" do "something" about the annoying insects, humidity, and 1,500 feet of elevation gain in that pesky first mile. ;-)
