Comments
Comments: Trail was mostly dry with the exception of a couple small, avoidable patches of mud until ledges before East Hayes when it got a bit wet. Until the ledges the trail is a pretty steady uphill climb often on rock steps. After East Hayes all the way to open ledges 0.3 past summit of Hayes the mud was more significant and still relatively easy to get through on hard surfaces. Summit of East Hayes, junction with Mahoosuc Trail and summit of Hayes are all large clearings with no significant views. Once out to the ledge past the summit there are wide open views to the Moriahs, Carters, Wildcats, Presidentials and more. Still some muted colors on the trees below.
