Comments
Comments: I had the trails and mountain to myself today. The Middle Mtn Trail and the Balck Connector up to the point where the Peaked Mtn Trail diverged had a hard packed surface. Thereafter, the trail was unbroken until about 0.2 miles south of the junction with the Mason Brook snowmobile trail. There was a thin coating of crunchy ice on the snow. The snow is not deep. I followed the snowmobile track the rest of the way to the summit. I did not break out the trail that begins and ends on the snowmobile track uphill from the Mason Brook Trail junction. The Peaked Mtn Connector Trail has not been broken out. Great views of the Presidential Range from Black Cap. At times, I could hear the skiers at Mt Cranmore.
