Trail Maintenance Notes

Comments
Comments: Trail was in very good condition. Pretty well packed with a nice snowshoe track started from the amazing peeps who packed it out earlier in the week. Still very soft though, and it snowed all day so snowshoes definitely needed. Multiple moose had post holed the hell out of a good stretch of the trail through Brunell Notch, but other than that, trail was great! Since it was snowing all day, there were a few inches of fresh snow, and there was some drifting from the cabin to the summit. The snow seemed to taper off in the afternoon so although the trail may not be packed, still should be pretty good, just soft. We were the only ones on the mountain today (Friday, 5 Feb), and we got to see 2 Pine Martens! Was an awesome day up there!!!
