Comments
Comments: Spikes or bareboots for Lincoln Woods and Black Pond Tr. Black Pond bushwhack was mostly snow free. Spikes worked well for Lincoln Brook Tr and ascending the Brutus bushwhack as well as across the Ridge. If temps do not get below freezing at night you may still want snowshoes as there is still 1 to 3 feet of snow at higher elevations.
