Nice cool early spring day. Lots of people hiking this day. Take heed of the rough& rugged trail warning. The climb up and over Haynes Ridge is fairly difficult especially if you are climbing from the South Prong. Also I highly recommend long pants unless your skin is like leather. The upper end of the North Prong and the climb up over the ridge and back down has a lot of growth on it.
