Comments: Snow and ice are finally all gone! Now mud season! Lots of standing, running water on the trails and mud, particularly on Kinsman Ridge between North Kinsman and Cannon. As mentioned, a lot of the bog bridges are in bad shape around here. With some careful footwork you can avoid most of the mud!
