Comments
Comments: Perfect conditions! We were in t-shorts within the first mile and enjoyed warm bursts of sunlight mixed with occasional cold spots for the whole trip.
Scottb’s report from yesterday holds true today. Very dry trail for 1.3 miles then spikes for the duration of the trip. The monorail was stable most of the way but turned to mashed potatoes as the day went on. No need for snowshoes as most of the trail is packed, melting or both.
Would absolutely recommend Waumbek if you’re getting your legs under you but don’t forget the spikes! And don’t forget to go 100-200 feet beyond the summit for great views!
