Hiking 1:54:24  4.07 mi (28:06 / mi) +1305ft 21:34 / mi
Got an early start thanks to a drive to Sheffield that I had to do, so I drove down Route 41 a couple of miles and headed up Race Brook Trail. That's a fairly steep, rocky, rooted trail with a few water crossings, so it's a tough hike, especially when it's wet, which it was after last night's rain.
Only met some other hikers when I was on the return, about halfway down--there were four of them, all with poles, waterproof boots and backpacks. Once they got across the stream, they asked me to take some photos of them; fortunately for them, they had a great backdrop with a huge waterfall behind them!
