Comments: 19 Mile Brook Trail was free of ice and snow for the most part and any ice was easily avoidable. We made it up 3/4 of the way up Carter Dome Trail before needing Hillsounds. There are a few blowdowns on 19 Mile Brook Trail that are easy to go around. Snow increased at 4000 feet but doesn't warrant snowshoes yet. The Carter-Moriah Trail heading to South Carter is still pretty gnarly. There is evidence of work that has been done and the trail maintainers are making great progress clearing the trail, but there are still many blowdowns that require crawling. Once you summit South Carter, the trail is good to go. Traction was still needed but the rest of the Carter-Moriah Trail to the junction of the North Carter Trail is clear. North Carter was snowy. Traction was helpful. The Imp Trail is a combination of dirt, leaves, ice, and snow. Near the top we just kept our Hillsounds on because the trail kept changing. Down lower, it does change to all dirt and leaves.
