Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: Even with a 12:30 PM start, I was amazed by how many cars were parked along route 302. The Crawford Connector and Webster-Jackson trailhead parking lots were also full, with cars spilled onto 302 near those lots. I honestly can't remember any White Mountain trailhead being this busy in February.

Comments
Comments: Wore snowshoes door to door. All the trails I took were well broken out, but not all of them were well consolidated. Some minor postholing in places, but nothing serious. The Avalon Trail looked like it could be done with light traction, but the Willey Range, Mt. Tom Spur, and A-Z trails were best done with snowshoes. The A-Z Trail beyond the Willey Range Trail junction (to the Zealand Trail) was not broken out.

Absolutely incredible weather and trail conditions today. Lots of people (and canines) out enjoying the nice day. Doesn't get like this in the Whites in February very often.
