Comments
Comments: Pretty much everything you would expect for a spring hike. The surprise, however, was that Kate Sleeper was fairly easy to follow. It (obviously) doesn't see as much winter travel as the other trails. Majority of snow above 2700', but there is still quite a bit on the last stretch out of Oliverian Brook Trail. Very soft down low, stretch of soft but mostly stable monorail higher up.
