Comments
Comments: Manning Trail had a lot of ice up high. 2 in our group barebooted it while other member had micro spikes and they to work well while me and the other barebooter just went into the woods to avoid the icy spots. Would not recommend descending the Manning Trail. Lots of mud and water on the lower slopes.
