The Ore Hill Trail

Route: Ore Hill Trail

Hiked in from the south to the Ore Hill highpoint. Trail was mostly dry and in good shape. A few areas look like they could be a little muddy, but not in this weather. Trail was never particularly steep, but plenty of ups and downs. Decent footbed for jogging, though a little rooty in some places. Quite a few thru hikers planning to stay the night at site of the former shelter.
