Comments
Comments: Delighted to find the trail broken out recently by a couple of snowshoers (thank you, folks!). We did our bit to consolidate the trail and it is in very good shape.
The steep section just before the summit can be a bit challenging in snowshoes but there is no ice of significance and really no reason to change footwear.

No signs of travel on the Mahoosuc and Carlo Col trails (other than the short section of the Carlo Col tr. that leads to the Goose Eye tr.).

Congrats to Doug on bagging #90 on the NEHH-Winter list.
