Comments
Comments: The bottom of the trail is dry, with some small sections of mud. There were a few slippery sections of ice/snow in the last half mile to the summit, but they were pretty easy to avoid. What a gorgeous hike!! So many beautiful waterfalls, the terrain is really fun, and the viewing platform at the top is fantastic! 360° views, and plaques on each side that identify the peaks you’re looking at. I’ll definitely be back.
