Ascent Trip Report

Got a late start after hiking Hale and the Sugarloafs earlier in the day. Took Kinsman Ridge trail from the tram base - which is pretty much non-stop ascent. Lots of rock hopping, not much runable ground. Had a rain/hail/thunderstorm move in while in the short trees near the top. Amazed at how many "non-hikers" were hiking the trail (guessing due to the tram/bar at the top making it easy to get down after drinking). Many not prepared for the cold rain/hail. Coming back down the trail was VERY slow do to the slick wet rocks and steepness. Recommend coming down this trail on a dry day. Very eroded and slick.
