Comments
Comments: This was a very tough, but very rewarding hike. There was thankfully no ice or snow anywhere. Could not imagine going up Baldface Circle Trail to South Baldface in icy conditions. That was definitely a tough scramble and fairly wet on the lower part. The rest of the trails were in good condition overall. Bicknell was a nice way to descend, with lots of viewpoints along the way and minimal scrambling. Finished the 52 With A View list on Eagle Crag, which was a beautiful and serene place to finish. Although there were lots of vehicles parked, we did not see a lot of people. Guess there are so many trails that the people spread out. My sincere thanks to Jill for joining me on this great way to finish the list.
