Comments: Might have needed snowshoes for fewer miles if I actually started before 1pm, I know such a strange concept to start hikes before noon, accidentally did it yesterday and wasn't thrilled for a repeat performance. Pretty firm down low, spikes to about 1600' on Stony Brook then snowshoes to the summit and then back down to about 1500', aka 1.5-1.75ish miles range from the trailhead. Trail is well broken but the snow was getting soft and wet in the afternoon sun on the exposed ledges, yum mashed potatoes. Deep postholes in places up on the ridge, if you prefer to not go up to your crotch in snow bring the snowshoes. Saw a couple people on the summit who had come up from the Bangor Street side and had snowshoes on so any mangling on that side should be smoothed out for whoever goes for it before the snowfall event tomorrow night
