Comments
Comments: We progressed from fall to winter twice. Once when we drove over the Kancamagus Highway from Lincoln to the trailhead: there is snow and ice on the road near Kancamagus Pass. And a second time as we hiked up 2300 feet from trailhead to summit: we progressed from dry ground to wet to ice to snow.

Maximum snow depth (near the summit) is only a couple inches; and on the bare summit rocks snow is mostly blown/melted away.

This was our first hike with kid-sized (XS) MicroSpikes and they performed superbly. I doubt the kids could have completed this hike without them.
