    Hot and humid day and not super buggy. Flat 2 miles in and then lots of slippery rocks on the ascent from the previous night. The hut before the summit is awesome for food, water and bathrooms, as well as weather and shelter. Take the spur for the lookout, as the summit is in the woods, marked by a cairn. Nice stop by the river to cool your achy feet.

    Great hike! Trail starts off as a nice walk in the woods and gradually gets steeper! Some ice and snow towards top.

Mount Galehead via Gale River trail (8/11/19, 9:07:29AM)
A bit muddy, otherwise a moderate to easy hike. Moderate because it is 10 miles long. Steep for about a mile. Beautiful views from the Galehead hut and from the outlook near the summit. No view from the summit itself. Just a cairn to mark the summit.
