Comments
Comments: Be warned: there was a group of us following each other and we all lost the trail. We continued until about .25 mile from the Mowgli intersection (on the Manning Trail), At that point, we all abandoned the mission of getting to the peak. We decided to turn around, but were concerned that other hikers would follow our footprints going in the wrong direction.
