Comments: Did the Twins(N&S) & Galehead in a clockwise manner. Snowshoes the whole way. Bushwhack trail from Little River Rd was a little confusing at some spots. We may have missed the correct bushwhacked trail. Haystack Rd was packed by snowmobiles. The NT trail along Little River was still a little soft from warm temps day prior. Trail up NT was packed well. A few spots were confusing in finding the correct trail. Low branches due to snow coverage were a pain on upper end of NT trail, NT Spur and Frost Trails. Received a light (1/2”) amount of snow for the day. Must of ran into about 20 other hikers during the day in about 4-5 groups. Exited the hike via Gale River Loop road to the bushwack trail that leads to Beaver Brook.
