Comments
Comments: A surprisingly fun hike with Spring conditions at the base and late Winter up above. Generally agreeable grades with snow starting around 2800ft, becoming consistent at 3000 with maximum depth of 4-6 inches of hard rotting snow (from mid-week storm). Micros made going easy. Visited the remains of the tower on lower Dorset, canister and records on Dorset thawed and available. Really fun shoulder season hike!
