Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: Most of the blow-downs have been cleared. There are a few big trees still blocking the OBP trail but they are easy to crawl under. I removed the skeleton left on Lafayette's summit cairn that had been left by someone since Halloween.

Comments
Comments: Traction is 100% necessary. The Falling Waters trail as well as Old Bridle Path are mostly ice under a thin layer of snow and it would be easy to slip without microspikes. The Ridge has patches of snow and ice with a few sketchy steep sections with very thick ice but easy to walk around them.
