|Parking/Access Road Notes:
||Parked at the Ammo lot no issues. Mount Clinton road to the Edmands Path trailhead is passable. Saw a car parked on the road (the lot still had snow). Not sure I would recommend it as there’s still a lot of ice covering the road...but that car made it! |

|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||A few blow downs on Ammonoosuc and Edmands but all easily dealt with |
|Lost and Found:
||Ammo was decent shape the whole way, wore snow shoes and didn’t have issues.|
Switched to micro spikes at the hut as there was plenty of bare rock but mixed with patches of ice and shallow snow.
Switched back to snowshoes once I hit Edmands Path. What a mess, it’s a post holers w*t dream. Large sections all chewed up by post holes. It’s passable but really have to watch where you’re stepping. Down on the lower end there’s large sections of bare ground and mud mixed with stretches of ice and snow. Lots of footwear changes, or bring old gear you don’t care about it getting banged up.
