Comments
Comments: Trails were hard packed with plenty of postholes. Most were not too deep but the frozen trail and uneven snow made for some tricky footing at times. Hurricane Gap Trail was less consolidated above the Cabin. Snowshoes may have been helpful there. Windy up on the summit with the main summit in and out of the clouds.
