Comments
Comments: The trails were a mix of absolutely everything today- hard snow, soft snow, slush, ice, mud, running water, wet rock, and dry rock. Microspikes definitely recommended for heading up Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail to hut, but bare booted over to summit of Eisenhower. Traction absolutely needed on Edmands Path, it was a mess! Very narrow hard packed snow path to walk on, post holes everywhere, and even with traction sliding was unavoidable. The lower section of Edmands Path was snow/ice free.
