Ascent Trip ReportOn the way up this trail was broken out and amazing all the way to Starr King. The trail from Starr king to Waumbek was broken but a little bit of snow had accumulated from drifts. On the way back we were surprised to see how much snow had drifted into the trail, some of it was hip deep. We saw another couple of hikers who also went to the summit of waumbek and back. The trail stopped at summit of Waumbek but I broke trail for about 35 yards in snow that was only up to my knees at the deepest parts to enjoy a view.
