    Kearsarge North by North Kearsarge Trail from Hurricane Road

    Date of Hike: 3/21/2020

    Trail Conditions: Hard Packed Snow & Icy, a few bare areas down low

    Special Equipment Required: Micro-spikes were the perfect traction. A few spots tested them but crampons would have been overkill

    Comments: Another amazing day, great views and cool crisp air. We made it car to summit and back in micro-spikes. On past trips, icy spots needed crampons. A few spots on the back side required care but were manageable. Some people we saw on our way down were wearing yak-trax or no traction. Upper sections were likely too severe for yak-trax
