Comments
Comments: Spiked the upper section of the Mt. Kinsman Trail, between the Kinsman peaks, and down to Kinsman Pond. The only section where they are really necessary is coming down the upper section of the Mt. Kinsman Trail due to icy patches. All lower elevation sections were wet and dry with some ice and snow remnants. The trailbed on the ridge was getting very mushy after noon, but stable.
