Comments
Comments: Been quite a while since I've been on this trail last time I was there I traveled the old Albany notch trail with all its mud and water! This trail is a joy with easy grades throughout and a nice easy trail bed. An interesting spot is crossing the beaver dam! There is a short side trail on the right to great view ledge a short distance up the spur. After reaching the summit make sure to head downhill following a well worn trail to a series of ledges with great views. Many people out today enjoying the trial with social distancing and masks.
