Comments: A beautiful sunny day for a hike. Pine Bend Brook Trail was a well-established sidewalk in the snow. The one caveat I’ll mention is the occasional postholes (most filled with powder) along the edges. Occasionally I’d take my eyes off the trail directly in front of me and end up stumbling after stepping in one. That said, pretty smooth sailing for the first two miles or so. Then things get progressively steeper (about 1000 feet or so) until leveling out along the ridge and intersecting the Scaur Ridge Trail. Conditions remained good - albeit a little sloppier between North and Middle. You could easily get by with either spikes or snowshoes. I wore both - spikes for the flatter stuff and shoes w/ televators for the steep sections which were smoothed out from all the buttsliding.
