Comments
Comments: Emerel had heard from another hiker on his Friday hike that her favorite route used the Tom Wiggin Tr.. Thank you to that hiker for the suggestion. Was enjoyable route up adding a mix of trail grades into this loop. Trail is fairly steep and has loose small rocks and some larger slippery ones so the signage by WODC on either end stating "Not recommended" is a good idea and might be difficult staying on your feet if you were descending. Ledges dry and only short stretches of wet trail.
