Comments
Comments: Stoney Brook Trail: Complete solid highway until the last 200ft of elevation. Then there was a little drifting.

Carter Moriah Trail: This is where it got very interesting. Conditions here were very tough considering the drifting and the amount of snowfall this season. There has been a lot of bushwhacking on this trial mainly I believe because you are so high above the trail. Everything you are looking at looks like you are in the trees. Consequently looks like you are on a bushwhack. Some of the areas folks had hiked, you could see a trace and other areas just drifted in completely. The first time off trail was just after I started towards Moriah from the junction. I knew this because it didn`t look right and I knew that I missed the first view point. If I had to put it in numbers I`d say I was off trail 15% of the time. This was definitely the challenge of the day. I did get to see that first view point on the way back.:).#awesome
