i did a slight variation of this m basically just takiing the A/t back to the trailhead from sunfish pond, i spent the night at the backpacking spot on the AT near sunfish. I did 10 miles the first day then hiked out 3 miles on day 2, testing my ultralight backpacking setup. Anyhow, i did enjoy the trail. That said, the portion of the red dot trail where you climb Mount Tamminy from the parking lot was really busy and annoying. Maybe because i did this on a weekend. Picture a crowd decending up the mountain, not much trail educate (people playing loud music and not allowing those coming up the mountain to pass). I seriously have seen less crowds in NYC. Luckily all of those people took the blue dot trail where as i continued of the log road towards sunfish. Also keep in mind there are fairly long stretched with no water, such as the logging road. This is actually why i ended up doing 10 mies the first day instead of 6-10. probably poor planning on my part, whatever. Overall i enjoyed the trail and would have given it a 4 or a 5 had I not had the crowded experience climbing tammany. Again, better planning might help avoid this.

Hiked the Dunnfield Creek this past Sunday. A chilly day but beautiful. Very nice trail that follows the creek. There are some really nice cascades and small waterfalls.
