Comments
Comments: A rainy Monday in Crawfords Notch. Snow starts just above the railroad tracks on Kedron Flume trail. The blowdowns just above the flume are quite intense. In several locations there are 3 or 4 trees laying on top of each other in the middle of the trail. Probably wind damage from Saturday caused several trees to uproot in this area of the trail, deep mud is in one location. The Ethan Pond trail is fine with only a couple of small trees in the trail. The Willey Range trail has a couple of pretty big blowdowns though. One of which has caused the creation of several goat paths in the snow which lead nowhere as people have tried to get around them. The ladders now have some snow and ice on them but are still useable. Recommend very waterproof boots, and clothing for this hike right now.
