|Water Crossing Notes:
||1st crossing: on the way in I went 50ft down stream to cross. On the way back, water had increased but I just trekked straight thru.
2nd crossing: went straight forward and did a little jumping.:)
With the snow melt, water is running everywhere including under the winter monorail. Be careful to see these areas and use caution.
Water crossing coming down A-Z. Huge tree came down this winter or spring and had to go around this to the right and cross to the trail.
All other crossings from run off and very easy to navigate. |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||I removed many large trees that had come down this winter.#fun |
|Lost and Found:
||Avalon Trail-bare booted until A-Z junction, light traction from here and until I got back.|
Lots of different conditions on this trek from this point. You will encounter thin hard trail rail, bare trial, monorail which is firm, not firm, wide, knifes edge, post holed and running water. I just racked it up as a great core workout.:)
Again I didn`t see a soul.#perfect#awesomeday#getoutside#NH48#solo
