Comments: A variety of trail conditions kept it interesting. Other than two nice young guys doing the loop in reverse, one young woman and one large group of Joe Dodge hikers we had the route above 19 Mile Brook to ourselves. Traction not necessary but there were a few icy/slippery spots and many in the large group wore some light traction. I recommended light traction because it simply is good practice at this time of year. Very little wind but less sunshine than forecast. A pretty fair day for November; darn good for a Saturday in November.
