Date of Hike: 7/15/10

Trail Conditions: Very dry, but not too buggy.

Comments: Parked at Bellevue Pond and hiked a loop of Skyline Trail (white blazes) followed by a loop of the Reservoir Trail (orange blazes) both counterclockwise. Trails generally in good shape, but with the lack of blazing in some areas (e.g. Sheepfold) combined with a maze of unmarked trails it's easy to lose the trail at times. Nonetheless a great day - according to the GPS appoximately 16 miles and 2400 feet elevation gain. Amazing to be mostly alone on the trail and have views of the Boston skyline.
