Comments
Comments: After reading the previous report on Berry Pickers trail I decided to give it a go. Navigating there wasn't too bad and the directions on Northeast Hikes are spot on. The trail is pretty easy and I almost felt bad stepping on all the moss that still is there. I spooked a small bull moose as soon as I broke out on to the open ledges. Saw several NOBOs which surprised me considering they have about 15 days until Baxter shuts. Great trail, leaf colors are really starting to shine. Next weekend should be peak leaf peeping.
