Comments
Comments: Great traverse from East to West along the Skyline Trail. Trail was generally dry with a few wet areas and a couple mud pits, all easy to get around. Great views to the Boston Skyline and Boston Harbor. We stopped in at the Observatory for a few and then descended the ski trails. I thought this would be a snow free hike but there was still some patches of snow on the ski trails. Fairly mellow hike with a few steep scrambles mixed in.
