Thursday October 04 2018 Barnes Camp Loop by charlene bohlWe began at Barnes Camp and hiked along the new boardwalk to the picnic area, noting the turn-off to the new beginning of the Long Trail South to climb Mt, Mansfield. At the picnic area, we looked at Notch Brook. It was high because of the hard rain the night before. We decided not to cross it, but headed back and did the loop the other way toward the Elephant's Head and Sterling Pond. Foliage was colorful and we had a great view of Smugglers Notch. A good time.
