Comments
Comments: Snowshoes or skis required on ski trail.

We started early and to my amazement, we were able us spikes the entire way, as along as you stayed on center of snowshoe trail, it would have been hard in snowshoes with all the precious postholing. we carried them, but never were required to use them. The last mile on the way out on XC ski trails was a mess and tiresome. Just love spring hiking in the Whites
