Parking/Access Road Notes: Parking on Wilton Warren road down about 1.5 miles from Rte 302 - there is a sign indicating the way - (trail 1 mile). Small lot was largely plowed out and had room for 5-6 cars but one person parked sideways taking up 3 spots, I found room off the road in the parking lot but 3 others after me had to park on the road.

Comments: For those taking the trail it is shared with snowmobiles bottom to top so be prepared to scoot off to the side of the trail - we were passed by 15 or so today. I guess the one advantage is that they packed down the trail. Down low mix of hardpack with some soft/sticky snow in sun exposed spots especially on the return - but even so did not need snowshoes. After the last wood bridge trail was a mix of frozen/granular snow with a few patches of ice - light traction worked perfectly. Stepping off trail you will sink 2-3 feet. In the stretch beginning about 1/4 mile below the bald peak trail junction (.45 below the summit) there is a stretch of trail with running water under the packed snow/ice. It was bearing our weight today though people had punched through in a few places. With a stretch of warm temps coming up it is likely that it will soften and you may expect to break through to the water. Summit was blown clear of snow.
