Route: Acadia Mountain Trail

Lower portions of the trail had some postholes. Initial steeps/scrambles were a little bit sketchy, but doable with care. Could be an issue with future thaw/freeze cycles. Above scrambles, fairly smooth sailing on spring snow and frozen granular. Probably about 2 feet of snowpack.
