Comments
Comments: Dry trail to start. Minimal snow early. Bearbooted to Blueberry Ledges. Should’ve put spikes on here snow with increasing depths. Spikes on 1/2 mile in, needed as was slipping a bit. Solid trail until the climb up the ledges. Bit of a traffic jam here, but not too bad of a climb. Nice views on the rocks. Quick to summit. Lots of snow in the trees means snow bombs & rain melting on you. Only a couple of spots where shoes may have helped but stayed in spikes, no issues. Good base to Passaconaway. Tried for the view point, only 1 set of prints for maybe 50 yards. I went past for another 50 & turned around. Thought about going to Hibbard but only 1 set on prints so turned around. Same conditions until the water crossing. Back in boots to the lot. Snowshoes were again a passenger. Bring a rain coat until snow is out of the trees
