Great hike on a sunny day with great hiking companions on a well packed (but very icy in spots!) trail. We didn’t need snowshoes, but microspikes were extremely useful! We followed the LT on the way up, but the ice on the beaver pond was solid, so we took the level shortcut across it back to the boy scout bridge, skipping a short steep up and down section.
