Comments
Comments: Really surprising how dry (i.e. not muddy) the trails were for the most part. Used miscrospikes from 3800 feet to the summit of Passaconaway; otherwise bare-booted the rest of the hike. Rollins trail had a fair amount of remaining monorail. Some folks were using microspikes, others were not. No real right answer to the traction question while we wait for the remaining snow to melt.

The Kelly Trail is excellent and lesser traveled.

The Lawrence Trail is also a nice lesser used trail. And it has switchbacks - I didn't think we used those in NH.

The Walden Trail is steep and strenuous.
