Comments
Comments: I did a loop starting from the Carriage Road, continuing on Hurricane, Tunnel Brook, and Benton Trails. The Carriage Road is a muddy mess. Hurricane Trail was surprisingly in good shape until the last mile near Glencliff Trail, where some serious work is needed. Tunnel Brook was a delight -- well maintained, mostly dry, and very pleasant. Benton Trail is also in good shape. I didn't need spikes until about 3,100'. I kept these on to the summit and down the Carriage Road. I didn't run into the postholing problem on the Carriage Road mentioned in a report from yesterday.

I did side trips to Snapper (spikes needed), Gorge (not needed), and back to Carriage via Hurricane (not needed).

Saw someone walking up ice on Snapper Trail in Converse (?!).
