Comments
Comments: Trail was well packed with about 2 inches at junction with LW but depths increased as we ascended. We used bare boots and then put on Hillsounds. The ladders were still usable with a kickspot on most of the steps. This will change with the predicted snow. Hopefully after the snow anyone going this way will use snowshoes. The trail would be great after that as most of the rocks and roots will be covered completely.
