    Jefferson & Adams, up Caps Ridge, down Castle/Link/Caps Ridge, 7/24

    Full Route: Caps Ridge to the Jefferson summit. Jefferson Loop to Gulfside to Israel Ridge to the Adams summit; back same way to (almost) the Jefferson Summit; descended Castle Trail as far as The Link, which we took back to Caps Ridge.

    Date of Hike: Sunday 7/24

    Trail Conditions: Mostly dry

    Special Equipment Required: sunscreen

    Comments: the road-obstructing blowdown on J. Notch Road, referred to by Quietman, has been cut away. Thank you to whoever took care of it!

    My first hike on Caps Ridge since September 1995!?. Great to be back!

    Our intent was to skip the second ascent of Jefferson by picking up Cornice to Castle. We missed the turn. Mea culpa.

    Congratulations to Ruby who "needed" both Jefferson and Adams for her 48, and did a great job on this rugged hike after having hiked Passaconaway in the heat on Saturday.
