Comments: Connected to Long Trail via a local trail off North Brookwood Road and VAST Snowmobile Trails 7A and 7. Snowshoes once on the LT. Looked like no one had been on LT north of Stratton Pond for a long time. Trail breaking was easy peasy - I sank in only 2-4” the entire solitary ~7 miles to the William B. Douglas Shelter junction, where Fancypants met me. We continued on the LT, which is also a groomed snowmobile trail here, to Prospect Rock and down Old Rootville Road.

Sections of LT in open hardwoods are hard to follow. GPS used a few times in order to stay on trail.
