Comments
Comments: some fast and frozen redlining on the cranmore and black cap connector trails. cranmore was making snow, but trails snow free. went up the service road to the summit (2+miles) to pick up the cranmore trail and loop down black cap connector to the service road. some frozen leaves, frost heaves, and ice in the low wet spots, but easy enough to get around without spikes. blazing is light, but footbed easily followed. black cap connector is a wide trail, because it is also a snow mobile trail...and used by mountain bikers too. only one blowdown about 8" in diameter on black cap connector. i moved aside all other trippers. after the junction with black cap connector and the spur path to thompson road, i BW'd thru the woods and across the brook back to the service road and to car. RT 8mi 3 hours and then i met up with friends at Redstone Quarry, which is a pretty cool place to explore.
