Comments: I barebotted to water crossing on A-Z trail. Trail was choppy hard packed going up Avalon. Snowshoes would have been tough. open areas of runnIng water. A-Z was smoother. Less travelled but still hard packed. One spot on Avalon was not right was but if you take cut it stops. You can see you should go to tight and over water.
As you went toward Field. Trail got messy. Lots of snowdrifts and some pothole especially right before and after. There was also a spot someone went left instead of right. Pay attention to marker if you can . Willey was fine. Didn’t look like anyone came up from that side.
Coming down Avalon was very choppy. As I got lower snow started to get soft mash potato with more slush and open water. Very windy day.
