Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: One can easily move through the blowdown area between Field and Willey and also there is a trail around that looks like it was built to reroute it. Trail between Field and Willey fairly tight in spots so if wet plan on it. Trals in great shape otherwise. 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Plentiful water. Nice trails for dogs. Most would have been entertained by the rabbit that ran in front of me for about 300' on the Willey Range Tr.. 
Bugs: None

Comments: Brrfect day for TFW. Cold day, hat and gloves all day, nice if you kept moving. Winds never much of an issue on this sheltered loop. Lots of rime ice building on trees near Field and Willey (quite pretty). No views. Hard to stay dry today with wet trees and trail. Only one hiker seen until back at Mt. Willard jct.. He was a NB thruhiker hiking from Zealand to Highland Center for resupply. Didn't expect to see a thruhiker on this loop and he seemed pleased when I told him forcast for next 5-7 days.
