Comments
Comments: Trails nice and dry. We parked at Flume VC and took bike path to Liberty Spring Trail. I'm not sure if this is the standard route, or is there closer parking to the north or south? If you know, please email me. At the sharp right hand turn about 0.5 miles up Liberty Spring Trail, a fairly well-defined herd-path enters from the left, presumably from the Basin parking area. Can anyone confirm this? If so, it would cut off about a mile or so. Beautiful day on ridge, 72F an sunny. We spent over two hours on the summits of Flume and Liberty just gazing into the Pemi. Simply spectacular views today.
