Comments
Comments: Decent conditions from parking lot to Galehead Hut. Wore snowshoes the whole time despite a perhaps 1/4 mile of bare rock on the Bondcliff summit. Otherwise trail was stable with several inches of powder on top. After Galehead the twin Brook trail was unbroken but there were some track contours despite the recent snows. These made it reasonably easy to follow the trail in daylight, but I highly recommend a GPS and extra care to stay on trail. After the 13 Falls tent site there is a huge amount of water including large pools under cutting the trail. I fell in when an ice bridge collapsed under me. Some of these are difficult to see or may feel stable until they are not. I would advise against going there. I’m surprised the water level is as high as it is. If you go, be careful and make sure you identify the trail on the other side before any needless water crossings. This is not so much about crossing streams as it is fields of water.
