Comments
Comments: Flume Slide is a fun trail and a great workout. Towards the top, some amazing stone cutting work has been done by trail maintainers to allow for hand and foot holds that make navigating the most difficult rock sections easier. Muddy and wet on almost all trails in the loop. Leaves were quite thick on the lower half of Liberty Spring before White House. Mix of everything but snow today. Birds singing like it was springtime just before the start of the Flume Slide to sun and barely a breeze at Flume’s summit to pelting rain and chilly conditions at Liberty’s summit.
