Comments
Comments: Narrow, hard packed trail trailhead to tower. Light traction worked fine today; if warmer temps like yesterday one may want snowshoes. Very little ice yet this season. Ridge Tr. has seen little traffic and by the looks of trail at each end I'm not sure any choice of footwear would be enjoyable. 5 days until winter even though we've had about a month of it already. Happy hiking everyone!
