Comments
Comments: A great day on the trails with the dogs. I was a little surprised by the recent snow. I made this climb without traction, but would not recommending doing the same. Rollins and Dicey Mills were fine, but Blueberry ledge is tough near the top when snow is present or wet. Stay away from this trail for a decent.
