Comments
Comments: Very sticky mud at the beginning, but it's easily avoidable. Few down trees to hop over, one that I had to go around. Completely free of snow until the last .5 miles where there are sections of narrow rotting monorail (unavoidable). No need for snowshoes or spikes. Myself and others were fine bare-boot.

Out and back took just shy of 6 hours.
