Route: Dicey's Mill Trail

Trail was wet on the ascent due to a good downpour around daybreak. Prior to the Rollins Trail, the trail drains fairly well. Above there, the rock/ledge scrambles were slick and had to be done with care. Lower portions of the trail with a gravel base were drying out in the early afternoon as the sun started to poke through.
