Comments
Comments: The road walk and both the Winslow and Barlow trails were very well packed from point to point (save for some ice on the steep middle section of the Winslow Trail). Wore microspikes the entire time, but if the mountain gets the large dumping of snow all the weather stations are predicting, snowshoes will be the way to go until the trail is well packed down or there is a thaw-freeze cycle.
