Comments: Moderate hike. We got a kick out of the Nippletop sign with the extra dots. Dial has a view of the great range. Reached Nippletop which had 4 hikers on it. While we ate lunch another 10+ arrived. We took our time and were the last to leave. On the way down we were moving at such a good pace we passed everyone else that left the peak before us. We even passed someone who was headed down just when we got to the peak. Aiden got stung by a bee on the Leach trail. The first sting of his life so I was a little worried how he would react. He was just fine.
