Trail Maintenance Notes: There were numerous blow downs but we were able to get over , under or around. The snow packed trees and over hangs made trail finding very difficult but Lynn’s Gaia track helped in many places. A nicely broken out trail at this time

Comments
Comments: With North Road not blowed this hike was over 19 miles. The road walk and ATV trail were broken out with snow machine travel. We took the Mt Snow trail to summit- a previous track was barely visible. With my two very strong partners Lynn and Lew it still took us over 2 hours to get to the summit
