Comments
Comments: steep way to start the morning of redlining! Ascending New Path is definitely the way to it go would not be enjoyable gravel-sliding down from South Doublehead. Great views at three different viewpoints. Ski Trail made for nice downhill jogging. Some muddy parts on lower half but ski trail is so wide you can easily stay dry. road walk at beginning is short and easy.
