Before the summit is an amphitheater ravine facing southeast that fills with thick WI2-3 ice for 200+ft on the northern side granite slab. It won't be seen by trail. Before the summit tree line the snow piles deep on the trees off of the summit. Head down east and carefully because there are snow cavities from the tree branches (snow shoes would be better).
Hike up Cascading Brook Trail to junction trail that heads southwest on spur towards summit. Where spur ends before summit descend down through snow gully to base of climbs. About 2.5 miles to ravine. Trail is usually packed by mid winter and easily ascended. Don't go up if large snow storm is approaching. Certainty of avalanche danger in ravine.
