Comments
Comments: Didn't see a soul, and only one other set of (human) tracks near the summit. Lots of cool animal tracks. Other than the fact that it takes a little longer to get to the trailhead, this is my new favorite walk on Smart's. If you've shied away from this because of concerns about access, getting lost, or trail conditions, don't!
