Comments
Comments: Took Hancock Notch Trail to South Hancock and back down. Microspikes sufficed for most of the way. The snowfall picked up a bit by the time we got on the Hancock Loop Trail and that made for a looser surface. We threw on snowshoes for the steep lead up to South Hancock but we were slipping quite a bit due to the fresh snow - Strava says the last .3mi is ~40% grade! We switched back to microspikes for the descent to keep our feet agile, wish we prepared to sled down though.
