Comments
Comments: A great hike, clear blue sky, wonderful views and probably the best trail conditions I've seen this winter. We wore Hillsounds start to finish but carried snowshoes having no recent trail condition intel wondering about drifting or post hole minefields. If you hike these tomorrow, you won't need snowshoes - that will likely change with the warmth and rain that is on the way. The parking lot and road walk are ice and the trail is hard packed snow start to finish - it was nice to hear them crunchy footsteps. The ledges have some challenges but were doable with spikes and there were intermittent but easily avoidable post holes from warm days gone by. It was nice to chat with Steve R from CT and UNH alum from RI today, the only two hikers we saw. Good Luck on your W48 and your 48!
