Comments
Comments: Loop is snow/ice free.

Lots of wet, slippery ledge. Some minor mud. Some drizzle to start the hike mid-afternoon, but after waiting in a cloud on the summit for awhile, a gust of wind pushed out the fog, revealing blue skies and views to the Whites and into Vermont.

Not much in way of wildflowers on Winslow Trail, but plenty on lower Barlow.
