Comments
Comments: Rainy and cold conditions gave me Equinox to myself today. Summit was completely fogged in and there was not a single car in the lot at the summit. Facilities were closed, not sure if it was because of the weather or if it is still too early in the season, but do not bank on the summit building being open just yet. Trail is easy to follow and well maintained. At above 3000 ft. there are still patches of ice and snow on the trail, but can be avoided. Mud season is in full swing in VT as well, trails are wet.
