Comments
Comments: In the first mile of trail, through northern hardwoods forest, the ground is soft and muddy. Able to see First Roach Pond through the trees. Once you reach the spruce-fir forest, where the trail has been improved with switchbacks, you start to hit ice and snow although some rocks are still exposed. Microspikes needed for this section. Less than an inch of snow, but encased in glare ice.
