Comments
Comments: The rain last week followed by a hard freeze has made the steep portion of the AT after the junction with the fire warden's trail extremely icy almost all of the way to the top. The Warden's Trail is really a frozen brook for most of the way down. Use extrreme caution. Crampons or micro spikes essential for success.
