Comments
Comments: shoulder season conditions taking hold higher up. some man made snow and ice leaving the parking lot then mostly just wet, leaf covered trail up until about the glades on the brook trail where a thin layer of crusty snow and black ice became more prevalent. this faded shortly before the range trail. from the gunstock/belknap saddle to the summit of belknap there was mostly a crusty layer of snow and black ice. enough i was glad to have light traction to descend this section. some minor ice ascending gunstock. i went down the ski trails following the service road which had some sections of ice easily gotten around. back on the range trail to rowe there was no notable ice or snow at all. the descent on the service road had mostly clear going with some avoidable stretches of ice.
