Trails
Trails: Cheshire Harbor Trail, Rockwell Road
Date of Hike
Date of Hike: Wednesday, December 29, 2021
Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Fencing and signs to keep the gates clear mean hikers need to park a little closer. When I got there there were about 10 cars in the lot and there was really little room left unless people park along the fencing. Not an issue on a gray Wednesday that promised no views. 
Surface Conditions
Surface Conditions: Snow - Trace/Minimal Depth, Ice - Blue, Ice - Breakable Crust, Snow - Wet/Sticky 
Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment: Light Traction 
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: On this route, water crossings are either small or bridged. 
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Moved a couple of small branches, if we get a few more inches, a couple of downed trees mentioned in the 12/28 report may be just under the surface being an issue for skiers.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw a couple, they seemed to be having fun. 
Bugs
Bugs: Actually saw a couple on this warm winter day, none that bite though.

Comments
Comments: Between the report on the 28th and the 29th, about an inch of soft sticky snow fell. This allowed me to bare boot my way to the top by my route. As of yesterday, the State of MA is still driving up to the summit. While the tire tracks up allowed good footing, after the last truck went up and down, it was too slick so I walked in the one to two inches of snow on the road. Wore micro-spikes on Cheshire Harbor on the way down until about a 1/3 of a mile of it's junction with the Old Adams Road.
