hello everyone, I have a question,and am looking for help..here goes. I am planning a thru hike for march, but I want to do some of the trail soon.I had thought of going from springer to around ashville to visit some family. but knowing myself I would proubly want to continue on. so my question is, if I do this around september or october is it possible or feasible to enter baxter and summit katahdin in the winter..thanks....

Yes, you can. But you will need to have three friends and technical gear. Read this http://www.baxterstateparkauthority.com/camping/win_procedures.html

not just Katahdin closing, but what about the feet and feet of snow and the steep decents in the Whites?
