Comments
Comments: Most of trail is well packed. Used spikes to above upper junction with Blueberry Ledge Cutoff where, after one posthole, I switched to snowshoes. Trail pretty clear to Whitface. Ridge had usual wind blown snow and a few leaners, all easy to get under. Lookout North of Passaconaway is now broken out, what a view. Walden trail is much less used then the rest of the loop, though there was some traffic so partially broken out.
