Comments
Comments: Summited Whiteface without spikes but put them for the entirety of Rollins Trail, Passaconaway Summit and the amazing overlook. What a view and I had it all to myself for a 20 min break. The joys of hiking after the crowds disappear.

Trails are in excellent condition. Some ice to contend with nearing both summits but that was even softening as the day wore on. Dicey Mill from Rollins intersection to Ferncroft was 95% dry with leaves. What an amazingly beautiful stretch of forest that is. Many thanks to the landowners who allow us to return through their property.
