Comments
Comments: Typical mixed bag of trail conditions for Spring on Monadnock.

Frozen leaves that turned wet and muddy as the day wore on, slush, ice, mud...you name it. Bring your crappy rock spikes with you, and you'll be fine. Ran into at least two people who turned around because they didn't have spikes with them.
