Ascent Trip ReportBiked from Stony Clove Notch to end of Prediger Road. Took Jimmy Dolan (blue) trail from there. Met up with Devil's Path. Summited Indian Head, then turned around and followed trail over Twin, Sugarloaf and Plateau mountains. Then back to the car. Was a gray day. I was in the clouds the whole trip (except the bike ride in and perhaps a short distance on the trail at first). Thankfully the weather held (with one brief shower being the exception) and the rain came only after I'd gotten back to the car. However, it was still a wet day as the wind blew drips down from the trees and the mist made things damp. Trails were difficult. Very rocky on the steep sections, which slowed things on the desents because of the rocks being wet.
