Comments
Comments: Lincoln Woods trail very packed. Black Pond trail also in generally good shape; however, snow was starting to melt and get a little sticky on our return. Lincoln Brook trail was much the same.

Brutus Bushwhack snow was starting to melt at lower elevations especially on exposed southern side. We wore Hillsounds but there were points where I contemplated throwing in my snowshoes. At the higher elevations the trail became much better and then finally at the peak it is not very well defined so expect some minor trudging through drifts.

Throughout Black Pond, Lincoln Brook, and Brutus Bushwhack there are significant post holes on/off to side of trail but nothing too bad - just be mindful.
