Comments
Comments: Nice hike before the warm temps and rain on Sunday. Trailhead lots were clear and not too busy even on a Saturday.

Gould trail was lovely on the ascent. Still fluffy snow wasn't too deep. Could be barebooted, but we wore spikes all day. Brought snowshoes but never needed them, snow isn't very deep anymore.

Cheshire Harbor down was also great. Never very steep, so a good quick route down. Some patches of ice, and part of trail is shared with snowmobiles.

Brookside trail from Cheshire to Gould parking area was a little unclear with multiple trails all blazed blue, but we knew where we were going so no problem, but could be confusing for others.
