Comments
Comments: Great day on the trails, though the shoulder season is in full swing. Bare booted most of the day, but I opted for spikes coming off Cube to Quinttown rd. My hiking companion did fine in bare boots. Stayed well off trail when we passed others and everyone was very respectful of space. Only ran into about 6 other people. Great day!
