Comments
Comments: For those new to Crawford Path: this is the Appalachian Trail (AT) but it is still not blazed in the standard 2x6 white blazes, at least to the junction with Webster Cliff Trail. The trail corridor is blatantly obvious. It is also a popular trail and is nearly always broken out. Only once in all the times I have hiked this have I had to break trail above the junction with the hut cutoff trail.

I really just wanted to make this post to sincerely thank the couple in the pick-up with the plow for their concern about the status of my son’s ankle. Taking the time to hike back up a mile to check on us and then to wait to make sure we made it down OK restores my faith in humanity. Thank you, I can’t thank you enough for your concern. It was well justified. A bad ankle made worse by a sprain made for very slow going. The last 0.5 mile I had to piggy back him to the trailhead as he was struggling to walk. Had these citizens not been concerned, it could have well ended up much differently. I thank you.
