Comments
Comments: Mixed bag of conditions today. There was some bare ground on the Tableland Trail (midway up Megunticook), as well as some sections of standing water, leaves, and ice, but otherwise, the trail was pretty much packed snow with the occasional posthole. That said, I'd recommend light traction to make the hiking easier and more enjoyable.

Absolutely beautiful day today for my first hike in Camden Hills State Park. Temps in the mid 30s, light winds, and not a cloud in the sky. Definitely want to come back and explore some more at some point.
