Comments
Comments: Day 2 of a Sandwich overnight...

Kate Sleeper Trail south of Downes Brook Trail was a little wet in areas as was some of the final push on Dicey's Mill Trail. No significant issues on Rollins, Walden, Square Ledge or Square Ledge Branch Trails. The northern section of the Oliverian Brook Trail exhibited a few felled trees, stretches of wet and mud, along with it being a little brushy in spots. The Square Ledge herd path is probably visited just enough to keep it from being grown in.

After waking up off of Kate Sleeper Trail I topped Whiteface in no time and enjoyed a morning walk around the Bowl with lunch on Square Ledge. Other than five folks near Passaconaway's summit and one other at the Square Ledge Trail/Pasaconaway Cutoff junction I didn't see anyone else all day.
