Comments
Comments: Trails were damp to start and ledges and bog bridges were quite slippery. Foggy and windy up top, but sun poked and fog lifted for much of the last half hour of flag flying.


Walden Trail in particular had some dangerously slippery scramble ledges (not that much of an issue when dry), especially descending of Wonalancet Hedgehog.


Square Ledge Branch Trail was surprisingly pleasant with good footing and steady grade.


Torrential downpour started for the last two miles of the Oliverian Brook Trail, turning the trail into a stream.
