What an amazing day we had on this trail. Started at AMC lodge (very cool in of itself) and headed up Manning. Got the heart beating and the sweat pouring (it was 100 degrees plus today) for much of the ascent but when we got to the first viewpoint it was all worth it. The slight scrambles up the ridge to the summit were challenging but doable. Firescrew was gorgeous. The summit and fire tower could never be described with mere words - absolutely breathtaking on this hot, but clear day. The descent down Clark was tough on the toenails at first, but then wasn’t bad at all. Will absolutely do this trail again!
