Comments
Comments: Beautiful day for a Firescrew -Cardigan hike. Took this loop counter clockwise, which is the recommended route, and I concur. Some fun rock scrambles. Enough dry rock to avoid the wet rock. Mowglis Trail has some large puddles, some we walked around others we skirted the brushy edge. Views were a layer of slated gray mountains. We experienced all weather, delayered to short sleeve, relayered with Mid-layer atop Firescrew, Top winter layer added at Cardigan, reverse layer as we ascended down. Handled the last minute rain in our short sleeves.
