Comments
Comments: Did this with Monica and some friends from the Random Group of Hikers. The forecast was sleet followed by snow but nether ever materialized during the hike. The route has been hiked often and the snow is hard packed. Made it up to near tree line without any traction but put the spikes on there and kept them on until we got back to the CCC Road. There were only about ten steps (all near the top) that made me want snowshoes - for all of the rest I was fine with a bare-boot or some spikes. The trail above treeline was fairly easy to follow now because many of the rocks that form the trail corridor, and even a lot of the “stay on the trail” string, was visible.
