Comments
Comments: Great weather for a mellow hike. I've been watching the Saco River basin and Pemi-Lincoln streamflow gages to decide when to do this trail, and now seemed good. Just a hop required on the first crossing, all others could be easily walked across. Saw five other hikers....three solos and a couple. All of us were surprised to see others here on a weekday.
