Beautiful bluebird day. Trail was solid down low in the AM. Became less consolidated up to Starr King and over to Waumbek. I used snowshoes which helped but wear what you are comfortable with. There are a few new blowdowns but nothing to reroute the trail over. Step overs and one crawl under. Trails were not crowded today at all. I always enjoy this hike and today was no different.
