Comments
Comments: Epic day - bucket list hike for me, doing all four in winter. Broken trail up Old Bridle Path. Joined by Steve and Pam below the hut where they took over. No snow to speak of on Lafayette - might want to take snowshoes off once out of the scrub. Microspiked from Lafayette to Little Haystack - occasional (thigh) deep post holes. Franconia Ridge Trail to Liberty Springs was deep and drifted - 2 feet average, drifts to 4 feet. Liberty Springs on out was already broken out. Everything but Flume Slide is now well-tracked out.
