Date of Hike: 8/13

Trail Conditions: everthing is in great shape, very little mud on the Beaver Brook and Ridge Trails. No special equipment needed.

Comments: Stunning day, had a wonderful time. If you are hiking in a large group with children, and you decide to make a ten mile loop, you might want to consider starting before noon. We ran into such a group as we were desending on the ridge trail at three pm. They were moving slowly and really pushing it for daylight. Hope they made it out okay.
