Comments
Comments: Started out at 9am Saturday. Experienced some heavy downpours and thunder and some tough winds later in the day - waited out some of these storms while eating, finding camp, before summiting to be on the safe side. Trail was in fine shape, met a few folks who were upset about how the trail wasn't marked well but we didn't personally have any trouble. Some wandering on the bushwacks, had the Gaia app handy and overall had no issues. Shocked to see so many folks so far in the woods early Sunday morning - lots of early risers! More people on the trail Sunday compared to Saturday, maybe because of Saturday's predicted lightning and rain. Overall a beautiful, fun, hike.
