|Lost and Found:
||I second the votes here on this gradual, very manageable trail as long as you’re OK with snowmobile traffic and constant jumps to the side of the trail. Three in our party used spikes all day, as did almost every hiker, but I switched to snowshoes at the AT trail junction for the rest of the day, and found them better suited for the beach-sand level of softening |
Busy summit with at least two dozen others, but everyone was well spread out and with such crystal blue skies/manageable winds I didn’t mind. Amazing how Monadnock and the Wapack ridge dominate the skyline, with views clear to Mt. Snow and Equinox in VT to their west, and to Mt. Everett and Frissell further south near CT.
Finally, a MA peak with enough gain to feel like our beloved Whites, until we get vaccines and COVID eases. We’re probably a rarity in abiding by official travel bans but it’s been kind of fun discovering MA trails.
