Comments
Comments: There was some minor ice on the north link of the Hancock Loop Trail but it was easily maneuvered around. Mount Osceola Trail from Tripoli Road had ice through the angled slab section, I carefully made my way without traction on the ascent, if I descended this way I probably would have put them on. Between peaks there was minimal ice, easily avoided. The chimney had some ice, not much, but I still elected to use the bypass which was dry. Greeley Ponds is easy to follow, there is one small section with water running through the trail but other than that it's easy going. The new reroutes along the southern section of the trail are fantastic. The weather was mild for a November hike and conditions were excellent, it was a fun day out on the trails.
