Comments
Comments: I didn't use my Stabilicers until jct with Rollins Trail but thereafter kept them on until Passaconaway summit. No traction needed on way down Dicey's Mill Trail from jct with Rollins Trail. Upper part of Rollins Trail is posthole city. Great (though restricted) views from outlooks near both summits. Considerable ice on last section before Passaconaway summit. Total loop is about 12 miles.
