Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A few larger trees down across the trail that can be ducked under.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: The doggo had a blast. Trail is well-packed so she did not need to wade, although she did so by choice in a few spots. Booties only necessary near the top when it got quite cold. We met lots of other dog friends along the trail.  
Bugs
Bugs: Nah. Best part of Vermont winter.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: One snowshoe perched on top of the map at the bottom of the trail (near the ranger station).  
 
Comments
Comments: Well-packed monorail, but it is narrow enough that it was difficult to pass others on the trail without post-holing. No slick ice at all on the trail, but micro spikes are still strongly recommended. There is some snow at the summit. Because the snow is quite deep, prepare to hit your head on lots of "low" branches.
