Things to watch for The trail is easily followed the entire way. The Webster-Jackson Trail is blazed in blue and slightly different shades appear on different sections of the trail, The Webster Cliff Trail connecting the two peaks is part of the Appalachian Trail and is therefore blazed in white. Be aware of the color change. There are some very rocky sections and footing may be poor if the trail is wet. Also be aware that the crossing at Silver Cascade may be tough in high water.
Sights to watch for There are great views from both summits and a couple of side paths along the way. Also a couple of waterfalls. Keep your eyes open and you won't be disappointed.
