Route: Hedgehog Brook Trail, Long Trail

Trail was generally dry down low, but lots of slippery ledge slabs before and on the Long Trail. Some minor mud, but not too bad.

Very, very nice views with a nice ledgy ridgewalk for the last quarter mile or so. One of the nicest summits I've been to yet on the Long Trail.
