Comments
Comments: The bushwhack that heads off the bike trail was in good shape. Light traction would work, but some might prefer snowshoes. Liberty Springs Trail was packed hard and in great shape. Light traction was fine. The Franconia Ridge Trail to Mt. Flume was in good shape. Not as packed as the Liberty Springs Trail, so some might prefer snowshoes.
