The Old Bridle Path
The Old Bridle Path

Route: Old Bridle Path

Trail is a well packed frozen granular sidewalk at the moment. A few slippery areas that perhaps warrant the use of Microspikes. Overall, snowpack is about 6 inches in this vicinity. Noted a somewhat packed bareboot footbed continuing on the ridge. Nice, chilly sunrise from the ledges.
