Comments
Comments: Appalacian Trail - From bear river rd parking lot-

The first 1/2 mile to mile the hard pack was washed out of the trail so it had some muddy spots and some shiny ice with some light water flowing still it spots but it really wasn't that bad to get through. Trail conditions were a good hard pack monorail still with minimal postholes till about 3000'-3500' then the hard pack wasn't as good and I saw more postholes but it was still good going just had to travel a bit slower.
