On winter nights, temperatures often hover at just above freezing, causing snow and ice to form. For some scientific reason I'm not aware of, icicles like to form on metal. The handrails on this set of steps leading to Weeping Rock are not only cold to the touch, but slippery against your hands. Add to that the water spraying off Weeping Rock and you've got a virtual slip-n-slide going here. One word of caution: be careful on your early morning hikes.
