Route: Wapack Trail

Roadwalk portion of the hike had some large puddles as well as a submerged water crossing. I was able to get by all of these without getting my feet wet. A few minor muddy areas down low as well. Other than that, the trail was mostly dry. Views in most directions from the ledgy top of Pratt Mountain.
