Comments
Comments: We only saw people on Lincoln Woods Trail. No one else on the Owl today! Dry, wet, and snow free trails until a few yards before the Brutus bushwhack comes out to the Owl's Head path. We put on microspikes for the stable but narrow monorail. Snow was a little softer near the summit. We loved changing into our NRS water shoes to safety navigate the stream crossings.
