Comments
Comments: These are popular, well travelled trails with a discernible footbed/ trail corridor anytime of year.

Nineteen Mile Brook: well maintained and blazed in blue. Often broken out after snowstorms. Great trail for novices and dogs.

Carter Dome: unblazed save a few blue blazes before the junction with the Carter Moriah (AT). Love the switchbacks on this mellow trail. Able to follow the trail without issue.

Carter Moriah Trail (AT): blazed in standard white blazes. Lots of rocks and roots still present under the dusting of snow. No view today but is normally a phenomenal 360 degree view.

Though we packed the microspikes they were not needed today. The minimal snow depths did not create significant traction issues. This is a strange November. We left the snowshoes at home. Alas, the snowshoes remain hungry...
