Comments
Comments: Valley way was dry for most of the hike. Then stable monorail and one iceflow that was nasty but avoidable. Watson path had packed monorail until treeline. Above treeline the trail was mostly dry until Jefferson. One patch of snowfields for 1/4 mile or so ascending jefferson. This was the only section of the day i used any snowshoes or traction. Fairly dry hike the rest of the way until ascending Eisenhower to Pierce. Stable monorail but the snow was still deep in the cols, would be awful if it was soft. Retraced my steps from Pierce to Eisenhower and descended Edmands path. The ridge walk around Eisenhower's cone had deep but solide snow. Ice flows were steady on the descent up until a mile or so from Mt.Clinton Road.


Walked/ ran Mt. Clinton road, Jefferson Notch road, and US 2 back to Appalachia parking lot. Jefferson Notch road was mostly free of snow until 2500 feet. Caps ridge trail looked like it had recent activity.
