Comments
Comments: Lots of leaves on the trail to hide rocks, roots, and anything else. Tom Wiggin Trail is steep as the signs say, but not as loose as made out to be. Luckily the leaves weren't that slippery on it. With temps around freezing all day, there was some ice in muddy sections along the ridge and a couple rocks with a very thin (and slippery) layer where they just looked wet.
