Comments: Can`t begin to tell you how awesome it was to be back on the trails after injuries have kept me away for 189 days. The Belknap Range is just a special place. I`m looking forward to more adventures year round!!

Brook Trail(yellow): most if not all the snow cover was hard crusted and would hold my weight. Once I got to 1400ft I put on my snowshoes and they stayed on for the remainder of the day. The only interesting part of the day was following the fellow trail through the snow making machines. All you needed to do was to know that the trail is on your left and as you cross the ski trail look into the woods and you can see the actual trail. Fun exploring!

Saddle Trail(blue):hard crusted with deeper snow levels.

Ridge Trail(white): really enjoyed this part heading over to Mt Rowe. Views and open glades off and on. Fun! Hard crusted snow again still holding my weight early in the day.

Ski Trail: just stayed off to the side staying way from the snow cat tracks.
