Comments: Long trail to Chin, Profanity trail toLong trail then back up to Hell Brook trail to the Adams Apple then down Hellbrook trail

The trails were in better condition than it sounded in the white mountains. Blow downs were not an issue. Lots of running water especially on the Hellbrook trail which made for a slow decent because it is so steep and slippery. The LT was in good condition with some water here and there. We hit some icy rocks closer to the summit especially at the Chin but were able to find places to step that were free of ice. Micro spikes will be needed soon. Rim ice covered the trees above 3000' and it was very pretty. The profanity trail had some running water and only a tiny bit of ice but it was a bit slippery on descent. There were quite a few people out and many in sneakers and jeans who did not look prepared for winter conditions at the top. We were in and out of the fog most of our hike. Luckily it cleared some when we summitted for great views.
