Comments
Comments: Trail from Camp is an old logging road. Lots of leaves. At the junction with the Canaan Mt Trail it narrows. There is mud and standing water. Just below the summit Of Flagg we encountered snow and ice. We had traction but we could avoid the ice. The summit of Flagg was bare. Outstanding views from the summit. Once on the Gorilla trail which is very rocky the trail was snow covered. Many of the blazes are on ground level rocks. As we started to ascend towards Mt Shaw the trail was at times difficult to follow do to the snow cover and the bushes and branches that have grown across the trail.
