Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment: Snowshoes, Light Traction 
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: First water crossing is bridged, second is open with slush patches to step on.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: I can see a lot of newer blowdowns and all are easily navigated. Looks like some more clean up once the snow melts.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: This can be an easy hike for dogs that are conditioned to hike in these conditions. Winter hikers will do especially well. The trail up to the MT. Tom spur is STEEP so, make sure then can handle it with or without snow. Bring extra water as even in winter, a dog will need to drink. Isis had a good day out... We heard other dogs but didn't see any.  
Bugs: NA 
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: NA 
Comments: First snowshoe from car to car since my diagnosis last year and because of that, Mt. Tom was perfect. A shorter plan than I started with but still a great day. Trail is well packed from the Highland Center traffic and should remain that way. A few more inches fell today. Enjoy these last few days of winter.
