Thinking about a loop hike in Southern Presis: Start at Dry River Campground, up Dry River trail, camp somewhere in Oakes Gulf. Next day, up to Lakes of the Clouds, and all the way back over Southern Presidentials (Crawford Path) to Webster Cliff trail and Saco River trail. Would make for a pretty good weekend, I think.

So.....
1. Is the Dry River trail really that rugged?
2. My map shows me a nice flat expanse in Oakes Gulf - good places to camp? Water available?

Thanks!!!
