If you haven’t been on the Wilderness sections of the BRT, this would be a good opportunity to experience a sample of the trail. You will become familiar with the trail’s tread, the type of impediments you may find hiking the trail in areas that need work, and a few views from overlooks that are unique to the BRT. Of course, you will experience how pleasant it is to hike the trail segment you have just cleared.
