Ascent Trip Report

Horton Trail + Huckleberry Ridge Trail, 9.7 miles each way; about 9 hours total (8:30-5:30). Started a bit later than planned; ended up finishing after dark, but managed without getting my headlamp out. 4 crossings just along the first stream, not easy, especially the last ones, but can be avoided by bushwhacking; the 3rd and 4th crossings are pretty close together. Forded Seneca Stream in crocs; just above the ankle, but painfully frigid. A nice sunny day.
