Comments
Comments: noonish start time had me looking for a shorter afternoon hike and this filled the bill. started off a bit gloomy but soon turned into a fine afternoon with a light breeze on the ridge. several folks camped out in different spots along the trail. South ascent and North descent both show evidence of Irene damage with many washouts and much loose rock. very nice day out
