Comments: Kate Sleeper Trail was the star of this show. Such a well-maintained and beautifully remote trail that had minimal snow. The only snow that caused any problem was on the north side of North Tripyramid up high on Pine Bend Brook. Still a mix of monorail and mashed potatoes. Whole traverse was 20 miles in 12 hours.
