Comments
Comments: A few people had gone before me to top of Gunstock with snowshoes. From Gunstock over to Piper and down Piper trail I broke trail. A fair amount of drifts along the way that would allow me to sink in a foot and a 1/2 or so. Most of the rest was 10" or so. I would definitely discourage anyone from trying it just with boots. I'm not a snowshoe purist, but it would not be any fun doing this hike now without snowshoes. It was, indeed, a beautiful day in the woods.
