Comments
Comments: A quick up and back from the Visitor Center. The mountain was still covered in snow from Friday's storm. Pine Hill trail was fine, we employed microspikes through the melting snow. We also diverged near the top to check out the old summit road. On the way down, the Loop trail was much less traveled, the 6" of snow was wet, clumpy, and somewhat disguised some of the rocks along the trail.
