    Flatbill this was an excellent video. Very informative with the trail details and simply well done. Thanks a ton for posting and sharing this with us. The fact that you did a half marathon and that Newton Bald trail wore you out - I now know I should stay as far away from that trial as possible Thanks again.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement. I tried a few new things on this video and have been working on making my reviews more informative to help any future hikers so they can know what to expect.

    I actually did a Half Ironman 2 days before this trip. That consist of a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike ride, then a 13.1 mile run. And yes, Newton Bald Trail still wore me out, ha. Thanks again for your review and for watching.

    Flatbill,
    Which watch is that you are wearing showing your altitude?

    Thatís the Garmin Fenix 3. Also has baro and thermometer, but I actually use another device to measure my temps. I hang it from my ridgeline at night to get an accurate gauge of the temperature the next morning.
