We had perfect weather, although I do prefer a little more drama, for mountain travel and we started out at the Roaring Brook trail head. From there we went up to Russell Pond on the said trail and then took a left onto the NW Basin Trail. Once above treeline, we continued to the saddle, up to the peak and across the Knife Edge to Pamola. Then down the Helon Taylor.
Some of the trails were not well maintained and so running was a bit squirrely. The Helon Talyor was all scrubby with thick krummholtz branches continually holding you back so you had to bob and weave and bust through.
