Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: The small lot at the start of the trail had a few inches of snow-plowed before that. If you have AWD and snow tires you’re fine! The main parking lot was plowed and easy to get in/out.  
Surface Conditions
Surface Conditions: Snow/Ice - Frozen Granular 
Recommended Equipment
Recommended Equipment: Snowshoes 
Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Snow bridges are sketchy from the warm weather we had a few weeks back. They’re building up but be careful crossing the million water crossings as there are post holes that are tricky-one almost got me when I was ascending. If we get more snow tomorrow it should add a nice pack in the bony spots. The big water crossing had a nice thick ice bridge and was super easy crossing.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: One blowdown but easily ducked under if you’re short like me :) 
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Saw one dog Jury and the owner (sorry I forgot your name but it began with R lol) let me feed her some treats. She was happy ????  
Bugs: One spider that I rescued from the trail. He looked frozen-I hope he survives.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Nothing 
Comments: GORGEOUS day! Everyone I passed had snowshoes on and big smiles. The trail is in mint condition! There are some deep post holes that were covered with the snow from yesterday so be careful if you step off trail. One I measured with my pole and was 2.5’! Solid beautiful base for tomorrows snowstorm. Thank you to everyone for keeping the trail so pristine. I met a couple from NY and they gave me a scone and it was wonderful! Helped me power down from the cabin. This is the first time I wore snowshoes from the car and back! Lovely fluffy snow-these kind of days make me fall in love with winter all over again!
