Comments
Comments: Hiked an out and back from Beaver Brook XC Ski trail off of Route 3 (not sure how the water crossing of the Little River on N.Twin Trail would have Been). Started with bareboot, put on micro-spikes about 1/2 mile up the Gale River Trail. Put on Snowshoes another 1.5 miles up the trail. Stayed with snowshoes for the rest of the hike until I got back down. Stay on the monorail or you will posthole even with snowshoes. Did not see anyone today.
