Ascent Trip Report

Parking lot had about 10 vehicles at about 8 am. Went Counterclockwise for the 4.4 mile lop trail. No snow until you get after Mount Welch. Avoidable. Some water on rocks but not slippery. Little muddy but not to be concern. It did put water on your soles of you shoes but does not make any difference. Great views up and down. Clear day. Not too crowded but once you get back to trailhead, the parking lot was overloaded. The Bathrooms are open with lines to them before and after. Did spend some time on Dickey to have a summit beer and socializing with people coming and going. This is the reason for a longer decent.
