Comments
Comments: Dicey Mill/Blueberry Ledge Trail roadwalks plowed, but not fully sanded, so snowshoes can be worn. Blueberry Ledge Trail decently packed for snowshoe traffic, but there are some postholes from barebooters (including moose). The scramble ledge with the drill holes is mostly covered in snow, but the one immediately above it is a bit tricky - I used my ice axe to pull me up it (keeping snowshoes on). Rollins Trail and Dicey Mill Trail have an excellent snowshoe footbed. Some tracks on Tom Wiggins Trail and East Loop, but none on Sleeper Trail.
