Comments
Comments: The trails are covered with falling leaves but dry and easy to negotiate up till approximately 2500' elevation; then the trails are snow covered. The light covering gives way to 5-8" as you go higher and across Rollins Trail. Light traction was sufficient because others had packed down the trail with spikes before us but snow shoes would not have been overkill along Rollins. Snow shoes would not have helped on the ledges or the steep ascents, which were lightly covered with wet, melting snow. Our group was slow so we opted to bypass Passaconaway (we did not want to come out in the dark) but, with more time, it would not have been an issue. There was one couple ahead of us and we were passed by 3 young men moving very fast (one in running shoes).
