Comments
Comments: A fun first time taking the Hell Brook Trail ascending.Plenty of scrambles as well as moss covered wet rocks to keep things interesting.Smugglers Notch Road was temporarily closed. i was told a tractor trailer was stuck up the road. this made Hell Brook an easy choice. Winds picked up shortly after reaching the summit. Beautiful moody skies followed with a fine sunset. Descending Sunset Ridge kept the views in sight for quite some time. it was nice speaking with the hiker at the summit as well as a couple i met on the way up.
