Once again this trail lived up to our expectations. We went from the AMC Highland center, up Mt Webster, then south along the Webster cliffs and coming out further south on Rt 302. Going up Mt WEbster first is always a work out, but well worth it once you get to the top and traverse the tops of the cliffs. The travel from north to the south does lend itself to some pretty tough downhills. Some steps have your looking 4 feet down under your feet with each step. Some say it is better to travel this path from the south to the north, but I only see the uphill as long and arduous, so I prefer the donwhills. I do use poles now though and they save the knees.
