Comments
Comments: The trail up to the split where the AT climbs to the Baldpates was packed and easy to use with spikes, snowshoes or bare boots. The trail at the fork up to Table Rock was packed as well. The trail to the Baldpates was unbroken and we broke trail up to 1 mile from the summit of West Baldpate. We turned around because of the temps, fatigue and waning daylight.
