Comments
Comments: Winslow trail ranged from wet to dry to ice. Patches of slick ice approximately 20 feet long maybe 4 of them. Easily avoidable by going off trail. Barlow trail (descending) muddy and wet in many areas again patches of slick ice avoidable by going off trail. Could go either way with microspikes. We brought them but chose to go off trail instead of donning and doffing many times.
