The Caps Ridge Trail
Route: Caps Ridge Trail, (Mt. Jefferson), Jefferson Loop, Gulfside, The Cornice, Caps Ridge Trail
With Jefferson Notch Road finally open, I headed up the Caps Ridge work-out-trail.
For the descent, I headed south to the Cornice, then reconnected to the Caps Ridge Trail - a bit longer, but better footing.
