Comments: A good day on this trail with tee shirt weather temps and the trail conditions were better than expected. We barebooted along the road to the beginning of BLT, then the spikes went on. All the snowcovered trails were a little bumpy with post holes of varying depth throughout on the sides. BLT was hard enough to support spikes but it's time to get out the beaters for the ledges and rocks up high on this one. Snowshoes a def across Rollins as it is a bit softer. Again, a bumpy ride on the impressionable trail center. We saw one hiker; a barebooter coming across Rollins from the opposite direction. He left an impression and probably worked harder. Snowshoes up and down Passaconnaway and then down DMT and more of the same bumpiness on the soft topped snowpack. The trail turns to wet/dry trail about 1/2 to 1 mile after the brook crossing. We barebooted from there to the car. Good views up top and at other points and an enjoyable hike overall.
