The Subway in King Ravine

Route: Air Line, Amphibranch, King Ravine Trail, Great Gully Trail, Lowes Path, (Mt. Adams), Star Lake Trail, Pink Link, Watson Path, (Mt. Madison), Watson Path, Pine Link

Smooth walk on Amphibranch. Rugged ascent through the Subway in King Ravine and up Great Gully.

Pine Link wasn't quite as bad as advertised. The summit bypass was rugged and probably not a time saver (vs. going directly over), but not as bad as some trails. Below Howker Ridge, the trail was par for the course in terms of White Mountain trails in terms of ruggedness.
