Ascent Trip Report

Trip began as a solo ascent. Met up with the 4 Seasons/New England Hiking Meetup Groups at the summit of Mt. Osceola and joined them for the remainder of the day. Trail was muddy and slippery in spots. This hike is one of my favorites (so far) based on trail conditions and views from summit.
