Comments
Comments: Zealand and Ethan Pond Trails are in great shape. Just a few minor muddy spots. We made a side trip to Shoal Pond and it was very muddy and the bog bridges had a coating of snow. The bog bridges just south of Ethan Pond were also snow covered. The ladders on Willey Range trail were clear and there was just alittle snow on the summit. Moderate mud and wet trail going to Field. Between Field and the Mt Tom Spur it was quite icy but we managed careful travel without micros. Some muddy areas at the Top of Mt Tom spur. The A-Z trail had some nice sections but others were very muddy. Nice views thru the birch glades down low. A great day with Megan.
