Bone dry until hitting the steep section of Flume Slide. Lots of ice, snow, slush and running water, also bare rock, would highly recommend spikes. You will bang them up. Flume slide in these conditions not for the faint of heart.Franconia Ridge trail from Flume to Liberty springs had deep snowpack and bare-booting was fine. I used snowshoes on my way from liberty to little haystack but probably won't need them in colder temps.Ridge mostly bare from Little Haystack to Lafayette. Barebooted down Lafayette, Lots of snow still coming down for maybe 2 miles from summit, some would prefer spikes, but lots of exposed rock so you will bang them up. Took the bone dry Pemi Trail but following it in the dark was too frustrating and the nice paved bike path too tempting, so I lazily forded the river with my boots and socks still on. Went barefoot back(painful), tied my boots to my backpack and I guess the lace must have come undone on one boot,
