Date of Hike
Date of Hike: Wednesday, January 18, 2017
Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: I accessed the trail via the herd-path from the vacant lot on Mt. Carter Road. The beginning of the road to the vacant lot was plowed leaving good room for 3-4 cars to park without interfering with the traffic (snow-plowing) on the road. However, the surface underneath the snow is pure ice.

Comments
Comments: 1-2" of snow low, 3-4" higher up - on top of a trail that was well packed down. Some sections on the Carter-Moriah trail has ice underneath the new snow and what appears to be good traction can be deceptive.

Snowshoes door to door.

It seems like once again the actual snowfall was significantly less than indicated by the forecast.
