Took the Coxing Trail up to Mel Brooks Mountain, this wasn't all too difficult, mostly a flat walk through the woods. Then off to Gertrude's Nose, this trail was completely snow ridden and involved quite a bit of scrambling. My party returned using the Mel Brooks Ridge trail. The trail was very, very difficult, involved much more scrambling, sliding down ice, albeit, the entire trail was ice and snow. Looking over the towns below at night, beautiful! The plethora of stars on the opposite side, breathtaking! It was fab.
