On this beautiful fall day I wanted to try a few Mt. Cardigan trails, so I headed up West Ridge, then took Clark Trail up and down the very windy peak. To add some distance I looped Clark to Vistamont to Skyland, ultimately returning on South Ridge. Vistamont was particularly muddy, with steep sections requiring careful attention not to slip. An advanced beginner, I'd rate this combo loop on the hard side of moderate, with gorgeous views and exciting terrain throughout.
