We hit the sweet spot for weather and ended up in sweatshirts. The oaks along the way had brilliant foliage. The trail was in excellent shape with no mud. Lots of fine views.
On the way back on the trail we hit heavy holiday weekend traffic, with lots of dogs. Nothing to bother us much and everyone was friendly.
It was a good hike and we stopped by South Stage Cellars for a glass of wine on the way home.
