||ATV trails, Snow Mountain Trail|
|Date of Hike:
||Sunday, November 12, 2017|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Ice - Black, Snow - Trace/Minimal Depth |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||No issues |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||Too numerous to count blowdowns across the upper third of the ATV trail and on the Snow Mt trail. A few ‘duck-unders’, but most were ‘walk-arounds’. |
|Lost and Found:
||Since my last visit in July, there has been a significant amount of flagging, starting on the upper ATV trail and continuing on the trail proper. Where the trail leaves the road at the height-of-land is now heavily flagged and several balsams which had been obscuring the jump-off point for the trail have been cut.|
The super summit views from the Bigelows to the President Range justify the travel distance to this peak. I had forgotten how dark the boreal forest can be after 3 PM in late Fall !
