Start/end: Liberty Springs trailhead
Elevation gain/loss: 4787′
I started out from the Liberty Springs trailhead at 7:30am with Philip. We’d originally been thinking of heading up the Flume slide, but given the slushy and wet shoulder conditions, we decided to do an out-and-back instead. We hiked up the AT/Liberty Springs trail, talking as we climbed, and made it to the summit of Liberty by 10:40am. We tagged Flume and then headed back down Liberty Springs trail to the trailhead, arriving by 2:30pm. While the conditions weren’t great, it was lovely to have good company and wonderful conversations; it made the time fly by.
