Comments: Spikes for the majority of the hike. I actually started in snowshoes thinking they'd be the weapon of choice but quickly switched to spikes.. though snowshoes are not a bad idea early on (the first few miles), as the trail is badly postholed as mentioned before. Mostly on the edges but also in the trail and it's a real mess. Trail was hard and firm though, only got barely mushy in the sunny spots. Small icy spots forming higher up towards North Tri but nothing impeding or dangerous. Postholes were more of an issue on the way down, slipped into a couple, so snowshoes are not a bad idea to avoid being lost in the abyss via posthole. Saw a few other hikers, it was about half and half for snowshoes/spikes. All in all a messy trail but manageable with patience and prayer.
