Can never tell in late November, but
1. If the snow depth is greater than 8", snowshoes (or skis) are required.

When I went up there this summer, we easily whacked over to the elevated rock but to continue up and make a loop out of it was more difficult.

The only bike I have is a '70s vintage road bike. Should I forget about using that? I have hiked and skied the entire road (the inner parking area had not been created yet).

I have downloaded the 1895 Elizabethtown topo map, but I can't figure how to post it (or a part of it). Neither US9 nor SR 73 existed as such then, but there are their predecessors shown and the...
