Comments
Comments: Decent trail, nice to see the brook throughout most of the hike. The roots were wet and very slippery which made for interesting walking even on relatively flat land. Disappointed there was no summit sign or rock cairn just a sign of which way do you want to go and an outlook point. If you are heading to do this trail Hike up North Hancock and Down South Hancock. Had a variety of weather, rain when we started, fog, heavy wind and then 76 and sunny when we were said and done.
