Ascent Trip Report

East Royce trail on the way up. Bit of a cloudy day but only a few brief showers. Did East Royce first and being earlier in the day and a bit lower had some views. Hardly any views from West Royce. On the way back took the Royce trail instead of heading directly back to the trailhead at East Royce. Lots of beautiful waterfalls as the trail mostly follows streams and brooks and finally Cold River. Came out on RT 113 and had a 2.9 mile road walk, mostly up hill back to my vehicle at the East Royce Trailhead.
