The Mt. Kinsman Trail
Route: Mt. Kinsman Trail, Bald Knob Spur
Half an inch to an inch of powder on top of a well packed snowshoe base. Very little snow along the first portion (ie the re-route) of the trail - maybe 2-4 inches. A little boney. Depths increased to about half a foot when rejoining the original trail (ie near the sugar house). Some low angle blue ice in the vicinity of the second water crossing.
If only going to Bald Peak, light traction would probably suffice for now. I wore snowshoes roundtrip and was happy with that choice, aside from a few boney areas near the trailhead.

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 112 West from Lincoln to Route 116 North. The short road to the Mt. Kinsman Trail trailhead and parking area will eventually be on the right, just before Tamarack Camp. In winter 2013-14, the parking lot was plowed.
