Comments
Comments: Snow started about half way up Gorge Brook. I put spikes on up in the switchbacks area, but plenty of people did fine without them. No ice, just soft spring snow on top of packed snow. Lots of mud on Snapper.
I’m no bridge maker, but I think the bridge over Gorge Brook needs replacing this year. I’d go over one at a time with a group.
