Comments
Comments: Eyebrow Trail (ascent): a few of the vertical metal rungs were covered in mud, makes it a little harder to spot them
AT (ascent): some areas of avoidable/minor mud
Grafton Loop Trail: no difficulties with terrain, I think we saw both gray jays and boreal chickadees at the summit.
AT (descent): it started raining so more mud and some areas of standing water
When connecting to the AT from Eyebrow on the ascent, we missed the intersection sign and started to descend the AT for a minute. Don't be like us!
