Comments
Comments: What a great day for a big ole loop. Trails held a little bit of everything today. Used spikes from Willey to Tom and a short ways down A-Z. Would have been helpful climbing Willey as well but I was ok with bare boots. Bog bridges on Ethan Pond (all 8062 of them) were very slick with ice and slush making for slow going, but mostly bare rocks and mud between, so did not put the spikes back on. Fluffy dry leaves below the Flume on Kedron made for a sloppy decent on very tired legs. Mud everywhere but nothing that was unavoidable.
