I was looking for a break from the in between season of narrow monorails and postholing in the deep snow cover in the Whites so opted for this trail to get a taste of bare ground spring hiking. And it fit the bill perfectly. Only small easily navigable sections of snow on the upper reaches of the trail. Otherwise bare ground, occasional tree blowdowns, mud and standing water, but generally easy footing. Not a lot of big views except at the summit of Black Cap but having done this trail before, I wasn't expecting that. Just a good 9 mile workout on a nice spring day on a trail where it's easy to let one's thoughts wander, clearing one's mind. I'll be back again for sure!
