Morning hike up an down the mountain. Up on the Echo Lake side and Mountain House Trail and then across Link Trail to Harrington Trail. The trails are cleared of deadfall from he winter stroms and the trails look decent. The new growth is starting to cover some of the trails.

The ice storms this winter really trashed the canopy and many of the trails are in sunlight now. Saw several really old, large trees taken out. On a previous trip (mid-May) I noticed that the entire canopy on the North side of the mountain look like they had been weed-whacked by giants. Nearly every tree was topped or had major upper branches taken down.
