Isolation . . . Up Bootts, Down Glen Boulder

Date of Hike: 5/26/16

Tuckerman Ravine Trail: 0.3 miles  /  Boott Spur Trail: 3.0 miles  /  Davis Path: 5.7 miles  /  Glen Boulder Trail: 2.8 Miles  /  The Direttissima: 1.0 miles
Total Miles: 13.0 miles (5,390 feet elevation gained) Garmin Forerunner 910XT

The hike up to treeline along the Boott Spur Trail is quite steep and rough at times.  Luckily, there is a new ladder step that has been installed as the old one was rotting away.  Kyle, Marta, and her dog Misha went the hard way and scrambled to the side of it!

Hiking above treeline on the Boott Spur Trail is phenomenal

The Davis Path, beautiful views in all directions!

Elevation over distance profile.  Our goal for the day, Isolation, was quite lower than our approach and exit!
