Ascent Trip Report

No spikes were required on this hike. Only trace elements of snow in a couple places. I didn't even wear gaiters.

Please note, this is the highest I have ever seen water levels on race brook. I had to do the first crossing of it barefoot and then dry off. On the descent I didn't feel like going through that again, so I bushwhacked east and picked up the trail behind Race Brook Lodge and finished the hike with a road walk on Route 41.
