Comments
Comments: Trail was dry with no snow or ice at low elevation. Beyond the trestle there was thin snow. At the junction with Arethusa-Ripley Falls trail, snow was deeper but solid. Prior postholes were easy to see and avoid. Crampons recommended at this point. Minor monorail near the Falls and a mix of monorail and dry trails on the way out on the Arethusa Falls trail, probably due to heavy use and low elevation.
