Hiking in spring conditions can be a beautiful experience.
It's the perfect time of year to enjoy the changing seasons, and one of the ways to do that is a hike up one of the many trails on Mount Ascutney.
Hiking in spring conditions can be a beautiful experience. Warmer temperatures, seeing the animal tracks in the snow, and viewing frozen rivers and waterfalls all present memorable experiences.
But you should always be sure to wear proper waterproof footwear with good tread. Wear snowshoes if the snow is too soft and deep. Invest in some extra traction devices for your feet when the trails are icy such as Yaktrax or for extra icy conditions some trail crampons. Remember that even if it’s not icy at home, a heavily used area of trail can get packed down and be icy.
Have fun. Be safe.
