Comments
Comments: Having not seen any reports for Stony Brook Tr since early in the month I was mentally prepared to break trail if need be. Luckily there were two sets of boot tracks that made it to the summit although there was still 6+ inches of loose snow to pack with some deeper spots and taller drifts. The first mile of Stony Brook Tr was scratchy and the ledges on C - M Tr are a mix of deep drifts, bare rock, and thin cover. Other than that it was great snowshoe conditions today although the snow became a little sticky near the end of the hike. I saw only one other group of 5 all day. They were doing a traverse, up C - M down Stony Brook, and all wearing snowshoes. The trail should be well groomed for the weekend barebooters. Excellent mild January day out with my favorite trail companion.
