Ascent Trip Report

Absolutely gorgeous day for a hike. Sara and I headed out via Lowes Path, connected to Randolph Path and then Gulfside Trail and finally Jefferson Loop. That majority of the ascent was a gradual grade with occasional sections of steep but (of course) just finally ended up being a steep rock climb.
We ended up descending via the Castle and slipped onto the Link trail till we came to Lowes Path again, crossing Castle Brook and Cascade Brook along the way as we wound our way through the Ravine.
