Comments
Comments: Well the road walk was packed out, very windy as well. We got to the ethan pond trail and had to shed a layer as the wind start to die down once in the trails. The trail was packed out since the storm but still i would recommend snowshoes. Then to our surpise no one had been on arethusa ripley trail..... so about 6-8” of trail break. There was one large blow down that will need a chainsaw heading to the falls. We were able to go around and under it to get past. We made it to the falls and there was open water near the top and towards the bottom area. Looking across the river we could see the sign but we did not chance walking over the snow covered unknown. We therefore turned around here and made a nice packed trail for anyone else to come.
