Comments
Comments: Trails are in great shape -- very nice new stone steps and drainage channel ascending Holt Trail, just west of the Croo Bridge, to address what used to be an often-wet jumble of rocks.

Lower ledges on Clark Trail have some wet, slippery spots; not an issue going up, but we decided to bypass these on the way down by taking the South Ridge Trail to the Hurricane Gap Trail back to the Clark Trail (to PJ Ledge). Upper ledges are almost completely dry and any wet spots are easily avoided.
