Comments
Comments: Spikes on 1/2 mile in. Shoes on going up the S steeps and kept them on till back to the Cedar Brook/Hancock Loop junction. BW from N to the NW Spur in very friendly woods along the ridge. BW from NW Spur to Cedar Brook Tr heading generally SSW in mostly friendly woods. 3-4 ft of snow up high. Sections of the Cedar Brook Tr for ~1.8 miles heading SE to the Cedar Brook/Hancock Loop junction had 1-4 ft of soft, unbroken, spring snow and many benders.
