OK, I'll mention those a bit. I wouldn't hike past the end of my driveway in YakTrax. Mrs. big_load and I used to wear them on slick days (especially shoveling our steep driveway), but they break too easily. We usually get about one season out of them, probably not adding up to more than a few miles. I have seen people using them on the trail, though.hikeaz wrote: PS - There is one product not mentioned called Yak-Trax.
Yep, kind of like this 3/30/08 photo on BAhikeaz wrote:"We came up S.K. Saturday morning (3/29). No snow, a small bit of ice in a few places but you had to look hard for it through the mule manure. Crampons definitely UNnecessary."
