Comments
Comments: Great winter trail! Done it twice recently and it's lovely. Bare booted all the way to summit though we were VERY careful. Spikes once back to trees for the first mile then back to boots. Only ran into one crazy trail runner heading down Beaver Brook. He looked to be having a great day though! Great day, but everyone be careful out there!
