Comments
Comments: a very popular short hike with rewarding views. a trace amount of snow for much of the way, but with it packed down from the many feet and nearly freezing temps on top of frozen leaves...pretty slick in places. LOTS of ice on the ledges. we navigated around it since we didn't bring spikes, but still had a nasty slip and fall. saw two guys with bikes on top, who had clearly ignored the sign. :( took the spur and connector back down to avoid the icy ledges on the descent. We warned many people especially those with children in sneakers about the ice.
