|Me on Gregory Bald|
|The first part of the trail is a bit of a cakewalk.|
The trail, both before and after the campsite is thickly wooded and in some places covered with rhodies, there are three stream crossings, all on log bridges, two of them are sturdy and well made ( the first and the third one if I remember correctly) and the third one is rather sketchy, the wood is starting rot and the hand rail on one side is pulling away from where it connects to the bridge.
|The "Sketchy" log bridge.|
|Mountain views from along the trail|
|The views from Gregory Bald are amazing|
|More amazing views|
|Gregory Bald is also popular with the local birds|

All of my photos (and some of my wife's really good ones) for this hike are here.
See ya'll on the trail
