View Full Version : Tecumseh by Mount Tecumseh trail 12-27

Conditions: Nice hard packed snow from top to bottem...no ice to speak of..smooth and graded with all the roots and rocks gone. Brook crossings varied from easy rock hop at the road to doable snowbridges on the upper two. A few slick spots here and there

Special equipment: Barebooted to the summit with no problem..snow just soft enough to get a grip. Did use snowshoes for traction on the descent..stablicers or screws probably would have worked..used poles on the ascent.

Comments...Great winterhiking conditions..smooth firm trailbed..no ice..no rocks..no roots..traction control an aid in the steeper sections on descent.. made it back to the car just as it started to snow...
