Comments
Comments: Put microspikes on at Avalon. The monorail up on Willey Range Trail is narrow and there are lots of postholes as well as running water under it. It was tedious and slow going for me. I am amazed at the people who can hike this without spikes!
Most may not need microspikes on Tom. Beautiful day to hike!
