|Hiking Trail Conditions Report|
||Low Aziscohos Mountain, ME|
||Asizcohos Mountain Trail|
|Date of Hike:
||Saturday, March 10, 2012|
|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Roadside on Route 16, on height of land about a mile east of the dam. Trail sign faces westbound traffic, so it's easy to miss if driving eastbound. |
||Snow - Packed Powder/Loose Granular, Snow/Ice - Frozen Granular |
|Water Crossing Notes:
||Nothing of size |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||A few blowdowns frozen into the snowpack. Recent logging in the middle portion of the trail - blue ribbon marks trail. Otherwise, very well blazed. |
|Lost and Found:
||Trail was well packed and could have been booted with light traction today. With warmer temperatures forecasted tomorrow, snowshoes would be a good idea. I snowshoed roundtrip with no issue - others booted with traction with no issue.|
Maybe a foot or so of snowpack down low - 2-5 feet up high. Frozen granular surface made for decent bushwhacking.
No sign of recent traffic on Tower Man Trail. Some locals are working to get it maintained again.
Didn't bother to bushwhack to true summit (Aziscohos Mountain), but the ledges around the old fire tower footings on Low Aziscohos had good views in all directions.
