Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: The Kilkenny Ridge Trail after Waumbek's viewpoint was narrow and wild, but it's a clear path (no bushwhacks). A couple of avoidable blowdowns and spots of mud especially between South and Middle Weeks. Otherwise, it was an easy trail to follow with nice footing.

Comments: We wanted to grab the Weeks but without doing a traverse, so we did a round trip by starting from an easy trail (Starr King). We were surprised that the Kilkenny Ridge trail wasn't that muddy! Almost 17 miles and more than 5500 ft of elevation gain for this hike. We were exhausted at the end, but we really enjoyed our hike. Met a group of 3 men between Middle and North Weeks, that's it!
