Comments: The trails had all been broken out which was great, thank you. Several sections at higher elevations had snow drifts which filled back in the trail but usually only for a couple hundred feet. Winds and continued snow on the Carter Moriah Trail covered tracks quickly and any blazes I found on trees were down near the snow level so it was difficult to follow the trail in sections. The branches across the trails at the higher elevation were awful. I have never had to crawl on my hands and knees so much on a trail. I don't mean blow downs that is to be expected but just getting under the spruce tree branches. I realize the snow raise the trail height. Some sort of eye protection is highly recommended f also hit in the chest and shoulders a lot from branch stubs. I would love to go through there in the warmer months with a chainsaw and hedge trimmers but I am sure that would not be appreciated :-).
