    Pete Nunn reviewed Tumbledown Brook Trail

    6 days ago

    This is far easier than the loop trail via the chimney, but still strenuous near the top. The first 1.3 miles or so are a gradual incline through the woods, but then it changes rapidly to a moderately steep haul following a creek with plenty of boulders and a little scrambling near the top.
    Did this yesterday with overnight gear, so we were quite slow - had the summit to ourselves. Very windy up top but fairly mild. No bugs once the wind picked up.
    Did west peak at dawn, which is a short but steep scramble up ledge. Worth it. 15 minutes up, and more great views.
    Swam in the pond which was chilly but refreshing.
    Not too crowded this time of year and the bugs are starting to die down

    Pete Nunn reviewed Mud Brook and Caribou Loop

    26 days ago

    Headed out on 05/26/19 up Mud Brook with full packs intending to camp as close to the summit as possible.
    Mud Brook trail has little to no blazes but easy to follow nonetheless. Pretty mellow hike through the woods at first with plenty of pleasant water features. Hot and humid that day and the bugs were pretty bad.
    There’s one great lookout from a ledge below the summit, but the summit itself is amazing. Tons of bald ledges and humps separated by small forested depressions. The views are breathtaking.
    We took forever to settle on a tent site just down the other side towards Caribou Trail at about 2650’.
    Got up early enough to scramble back up to the peak for sunrise. The lighting was amazing. Super cold and windy up there at 5am though!
    The descent down Caribou trail is more gradual but rougher. Not well marked but easy to follow. Very mucky in spots with plenty of blowdowns to maneuver around/over.
    Several beautiful falls and pools alongside this trail with multiple small stream crossings. Bridge is out close to the end but we were able to hop across.
    Bugs were unusually bad, but otherwise a fantastic time!
    We went slow with the heavy packs plus we’re just slow. As a day hike it could be done much more rapidly.

    Beautiful hike today - moderately difficult merely due to the persistent incline, stream crossing and abundance of roots.
    We were unable to simply hop across the stream, so we waded across barefoot. Very cold, but at least the rocks aren’t slippery.
    You’re mostly hiking through forest, but there is one nice view of the Moats and other nearby peaks before the final push to the top.
    The summit has beautiful 180 views to the west.
    No bugs at all and just a light rain towards the end.

    Had a blast out there today.

    The first half mile or so was like a balance beam of icy snow down the center of the trail, but it quickly dried up and was mostly snow free afterwards.

    Pretty muddy in spots, and so, so many roots which made for some very slow and deliberate footing at times.
    Plenty of open ledges along the way with wonderful views.

    I was unclear when I’d reached the actual summit, but no bother, it was really a nice, moderately strenuous hike through varied terrain.

    Perfect weather too...hardly anyone there and just a couple of monstrous mosquitos.
