A fun hike. Not too hard with some nice views from the peaks. Did the red trail up to Piper North, then Green to Whiteface. Took the yellow Vista Trail to Piper South at the intersection where Whiteface turned off. Came back and continued on to Whiteface. Total trip was 9.1 miles and about 4 hours. The app stopped recording for some reason once got to Whiteface.
