Comments
Comments: Flume slide trail on lower sections was very muddy. Slabs on upper section were wet and very slippery. Spent a lot of time on side herd paths since the slabs were so slippery. Section of packed snow and ice between Flume and Little Haystack in sections between peaks. Varying amounts of mud on Franconia Ridge Trail. Upper sections of Liberty Spring trail were packed snow/ice. Traction was definitely useful on upper sections.
