Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: rocks on first crossing of Avalon Trail are ice-covered. We used microspikes. Second crossing had a log and some rocks, all of which were loose/moving. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A few duck-under and step-overs on Willey Range Trail. Largest obstruction was three downed conifers together on A-Z Trail. One blowdown on Mt. Tom Spur just before summit. Surprisingly, no significant blowdowns between Willey and Field (a usual trouble spot). A great deal of work has been done clearing obstructions since the Halloween storm. Thanks to those who did this work.
