Comments: The trail was broken down and slightly packed, however snowshoes is the best. We started by north hanckock. Of course trail was steep but with the healers on, it is not a big deal my friend and i took our time. Nothing terrible. The summit has great views since the layers of snow has elevated us very high. The trail to south hancock was less packed and less stabl e. Get ready to get all the branches whipping your face! the way down from south hancock wa s bit tricky, some people buttsleight, some kept snowshoes... I switched to microspikes.did not feel confident to see all the butt sleither , then to use my snow shoes.

The hike was great we had views of carters, presidentials, oceola.... It was very nice.
