Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: The access road from Telos Road to the west side of the park via Williams Pond was plowed to about 1/4 mile before Williams Pond - leaving us with just about 2 miles of skiing to Nesowadnehunk. And a good suitable parking area at the end of the plowed section. Plenty of logging piles along this road and a lot of equipment. All was snow-covered and seemed untouched since before the November snowstorms as we trekked in. However, 2 days later on our way out many piles had been moved and machinery was in operation along the road. We were fortunate not to meet any logging-trucks.

Excellent skiing conditions on the Tote Road. Breaking trail in moderate conditions for about the first half of the Marston tr. to about 3,000 ft. From thereon it was rough. We sawed our way through a couple dozen sections (some blowdowns but mostly bend-overs), pushed through another couple of dozen sections and circumnavigated 3-4 sections which were impossible to get through. 5 1/2 hour from TH to summit.
