Comments
Comments: Started bareboot today switched to microspikes as trail got steeper. The two tricky spots on the ledges were no problem. There was a small amount of ice and hard packed snow. There was some minor drifting just before viewpoint on Passaconway but trail overall well packed until the water crossing on Dicey Mills. Trail became very soft and switched to snowshoes for the rest of the hike.
