Not quite treeline weather/conditions, so Liberty/Flume were a good fit for the first winter hike of the season. Never enough snow to warrant snowshoes. Some decent blue ice above the campsite, but otherwise Microspikes were adequate.

Directions to trailhead: Take Interstate 93 north from Lincoln to the Basin. Walk south down the bike path - just prior to reaching a grassy, old road on the right (where the bike path gets close to the highway), start the bushwhack on the left. After crossing a brook, an old logging road can be found a bit to the left, eventually meeting up with the hairpin turn in the Liberty Spring Trail
