Comments
Comments: Everything between these peaks is 99% rock with a patch of snow here and there.

Jewell Trail is in pretty good shape for the first two miles, just some mud and wet sections. The last mile up to treeline has monorail but it really isn't that bad at all, some spots you can walk next to it.

Ammonnoosuc Ravine Trail is still holding snow, a ton of it! The first mile from the lot is muddy and wet. Then the monorail starts and the snow level quickly gets deep, there is still a ton of snow above the Gem Pool until about a quarter mile below Lakes of the Clouds. If you take this route head up it as it's easier going up than down it. I descended it in my microspikes and it was a wild balancing act down the steeps!

Beautiful day out to meet up with my presi traversing friends. Only saw a handful of other hikers out and about!
