Comments
Comments: A very peaceful, yet very long, walk in the woods. Ran into a few other hiking groups, but plenty of stretches of solitude. No views from the top, and the cairn is small enough to miss it. Bushwhacks were easy to follow. Lots of opportunities to rest along the river for snacks or to refill water. I packed sandals for the last few miles on the Lincoln Woods flat trail out and my feet were very thankful for that.
