Comments: Glad I went up Snapper. Dry all the way up to Carriage Road, which is mostly dry with a few minor muddy/wet spots before patchy monorail begins at 4200', constant at 4300'. Spikes on here to the knob at 4600' south of the summit. Summit dry. Lots of monorail and snow in the woods between the summit and the east knob on Gorge Brook Trail. Spikes on for this and then from dropping back into the trees at 4500' down below the 2nd viewpoint. Lotta annoying, patchy, avoidable mud and remnant monorail down to the lower viewpoint, and then some, down to the stream and bridge. Bring the spikes its still shoulder season up high
