Comments
Comments: Trail alternated dry, mud, rocks on the lower sections. So many tiny brook crossings I lost count! Snowy sections, icy sections with limited monorail, past Kilkenny junction. After Bunnell Rock, more significant packed snow on trail with occasional post-holing on the soft edges. Microspikes were ideal.
