Comments
Comments: It was a fine day out. The reservation restrictions are probably the best thing to happen to that park, because while the summit had a nominal crowd, it wasn't a huge sea of bodies as one would expect to find. Dublin trail itself is a hidden gem, and while it wasn't solitude, strictly speaking, I didn't pass a lot of people.

Be aware that some of the rocks get quite slippery when wet, and certainly today, a lot of the slabs in the shady spots were quite sweaty. Other than that, it's a very enjoyable trail.

Pics and a more detailed trip report are on my blog, as always. Enjoy!
