Comments
Comments: Started up Avalon trail at 11 am with microspikes. Brook crossings were solid. Took A-Z trail to the Mt. TOM spur. Trail was solid. Trail from Tom to Field was gradual and warming but there was no sinking. The decent from Field to Avalon was steep and following sledders, a little slick but not unmanageable. From the summit of Avalon to the intersection of A-Z was steep and icy. We returned to parking lot at 615 pm. Our group of 4 kids and 2 adult women used microspikes the entire day with no postholing or wishing we had snowshoes. It was a wonderful 7.25 mile hike that the children handled easily.
