Comments: I took the Burnt meadow trail to north peak which wasn’t that bad... on & off bare ground to frozen snow... postholes weren’t that bad... Microspikes were fine, I carried snowshoes just in case because I didn’t know what to expect going down the twin brook trail.... ugh.... frozen posthole mess. To cold for snowshoes where as the snow wasn’t softening up so I couldn’t smooth over nothing. It was slow going making sure not to turn an ankle... views weren’t bad.... high clouds so you could see the summits in the whites but hazy. We need snow! If I had to do it again I wouldn’t have done the loop, I just would of come back the way I came up. A few big storms and a nice snowshoe track would make this a great winter hike loop. Still great to be outside tho... met 2 nice ladies on the twin brook trail heading up to Stone Mountain which did look broken out.
