Comments: From the parking lot to the junction with Willey Range trail is a highway, as one might expect, and starting to get a touch icy in spots. The rest of the way to the pond is far less traveled, so cheers to the two hikers I met on my way in/their way out who reported having broken this one out yesterday! Footbed is not entirely consolidated on that section, but off to a nice start. Didn't look like anyone has been past the campsite heading towards Thoreau Falls and Zealand trail since the last snow fell. I carried snowshoes and Hillsounds and was not mad about giving them a free ride, but didn't use either. All of this changes with tomorrow's storm, of course, but here it is for today!
