Peaks Elmore Mountain, VT

Trails: Park roads, herd path, Fire Tower Trail
Date of Hike
Date of Hike: Saturday, January 13, 2018
Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Not plowed as of 4:30 Sat. afternoon. We helped push one hiker out who cut corner a little too sharp and got caught in a soft section. Most likely will be plowed after higher priority jobs finished. 
Surface Conditions
Surface Conditions: Ice - Blue, Snow - Packed Powder/Loose Granular, Snow - Unpacked Powder, Snow - Drifts, Snow/Ice - Postholes 
Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment: Light Traction 
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Couple of hikers on Ridge Tr. said they had no issues on the few crossings; but these are very small usually walked across crossings. From the looks of the brook down near the herd path I would imagine any significant crossings in northern Vt. would've been a challenge.

Comments
Comments: Eleven hikers out today; 2 probably 4 doing loop down Ridge Tr. All in light traction I believe. Significant ice starting to form in the tower section; kahtoola microspikes worked fine today but may get more difficult quickly. Since early December it's been 50\50 with me snowshoes\light traction. Bottom line wear them if they help you but don't worry about leaving a sidewalk path as it seems less and less likely to have these conditions here. On this 2600' mountain the latest storm did not change conditions as much as anticipated.
