Today the trail was covered with firmly packed iced over snow. I worn ice cleats and walked atop the snow without sinking in. Having started my hike at 6 am in 14 degree temperatures, I had the trail to myself.
ITS 84 is a snowmobile trail that bisects the Hermon trail approximately 1/2 mile in. I walked a little in each direction until I could see houses and then turned around. I did not see any snowmobilers on the trail.
Here is a map of my hike.
