Comments
Comments: GPS registered 16 miles total from Lincoln Woods parking lot using the Black Pond bushwhack and Brutus winter route.
Snow shoes not needed but would help and better than microspikes on the steep Brutus climb up from the last water crossing. A few knee deep drifts along the ridge to reach the truer summit if you step off the packed path.
