tom wiggin trail

Dicey's Mill Trail meets the Tom Wiggin Trail at 1.9 miles. At this point I was thinking "yeesh, I'm going incredibly slow, and there's hardly been any elevation gain yet!"

You can take the Tom Wiggin Trail up to Mt Whiteface, another 4000-footer. In the back of my mind, I had been thinking about attempting Mt Whiteface on the way back, although I knew it would be tough getting out before sunset if I took that route.

The sign says that Tom Wiggin Trail is "not recommended steep and loose". The Guide says the same thing (p 416 - "...many sections of loose, gravelly footing that are particularly tedious on the descent"!). In the end I decided not to risk it. Mt Whiteface will get its own separate day!
