Comments
Comments: Did a quick impromptu hike up Watatic to dodge the rain and thunder storms. The powerline trail (supposedly the old route of the Wapack/Midstate Trail) was steep and eroded in many spots, but other than that, there were no major issues. Humid as hell the whole time despite being in the low 70s for a temperature, but a good workout nonetheless.
