Saturday 29 February 2020
Ward Brook Trail Head - Ward Brook Trail - Seymour Herd Path - Seymour Mountain U - Seymour Herd Path - Ward Brook Trail - Ward Brook Trail Head

I reclimbed Seymour Mountain with Goat. It was one the toughest hikes I've done in years, and maybe one of the two worst ever in terms of post-hike physical effects.
