Date of Hike: July 24, 2013

Trail Conditions: The first mile-and-a-half or so was in mostly good condition with a little bit of mud here and there. There was one large easy-over blowdown that looked fairly new; it was a hardwood, fully downed, but with leaves on the branches. Crossings were easy rock hops. No bugs.

Special Equipment Used: None.

Comments: Hiked this one as a co-leader for the AMC with Beth Zimmer. In our group was Steff, Karen, Sue, Erik, Inna, and Page. Our Plan A was to hit Crawford, Resolution, and Stairs Mountain, but one participant became ill so we cut our trek short and instead opted for a different hike just so we wouldn't have to repeat the same route again. Great day for a hike, despite the turnaround. It started hot and muggy but got better as the day went on.
