Comments: Snowshoes start to finish. Ledges completely snow covered, kicked stairs in to make it up. Our track on Rollins meandered a bit, was hard to follow the trail in spots, sorry about that. There were a few sets of snowshoe tracks going up both ends of the loop for a couple miles on each side, but ours (2) tracks were the only ones from the Ledges, across Rollins, up Passaconaway, and part way down Dicey's. Lower part of Dicey's is getting bony, might need to spike that part soon. Upper elevations had snow on trees which was melting and raining on us all day so we got soaked. Lower elevation was more dry. The log bridge over the one xing is still solid, no problem xing it with snowshoes on. Snowshoes, snowshoes, snowshoes.
