Comments
Comments: Well packed trail up to Bald. Micro spikes are fine for that section unless it is warm and the snow starts to soften later in the day. From Bald to Saddleback Wind is in rough shape. It needs a lot more traffic with snowshoes to smooth it back out. Please remember that we aren’t to destroy the trail season yet. We will be walking on this snow/ice tread way for another month or two so we should try to keep them in good shape.
