Comments
Comments: The trail was not as muddy as I expected, just a few spots that were mostly avoidable. Vast majority of the trail was dry which was great. Terrain was really easy to manage, pretty flat for the first couple of miles and then gradually uphill for the rest. The last .1 mile was steep rock but really not bad at all. The black flies were pretty bad, but could have been worse. Definitely should have brought bug spray. No snow finally! Microspikes stayed on my pack the whole time. Check out my blog below for pictures and more info!
