Comments: Great hiking weather for this Osceolas-Scar Ridge-Loon traverse. Skies were somewhat overcast at first but gradually cleared after I reached West Osceola. I dropped down to East Pond to refill my water bottles and then retraced my steps to the col, where I started the bushwhack up to East Scar; woods were very open and enjoyable until the summit plateau. Had lunch at the sweet view ledge on the southeastern side of Peak 3400 and then made my way across to Loon, stopping at the Scar Ridge NW slide along the way. At Loon, all of my travels were done via bushwhack on WMNF land due to the access policies which are currently in place on the ski trails (confirmed with the resort via phone today). For this reason, I did not visit Loon’s North Peak, since it is landlocked by ski trails. For the descent, I whacked through a hobblebush-y forest on the far W side of the mountain, eventually reaching Lincoln where I got a ride back to my car. Overall a great day in the forest and a good use of the extended daylight hours, about three hours of trail hiking and 10 hours of bushwhacking for this trip.
