Minor to moderate mud on Link (between Cliffway and Beechwood Way), Cliffway, lower Monaway. Some slippery rock (though not particularly wet) on Ice Caves Loop. Took the woods road (essentially lower Beechwood Way) to Presidential Rail Trail, as it was well past sunset but I didn't want to put on my headlamp for the last section of The Link.


Other than when passing by the RMC hut, didn't see a single other person on the trails this afternoon or evening. Seasonably warm temperatures down low, but reasonable up high with gentle winds.
