The Gile Mountain Tower Trail
Route: Gile Mountain Tower Trail
About half an inch to an inch of powder from Thursday on top of a frozen granular and occasional blue ice base. Due to the blue ice, light traction is a good idea. Fire tower steps not icy.
About six inches of snowpack in the woods with a crust firm enough to support boots at below freezing temperatures. Nice sunrise jog, though a bit chilly.

Directions to trailhead: From Exit 13 of I-91, take US 5 North into Norwich, continuing straight into the village (while US 5 turns right). Soon thereafter, take a left onto Turnpike Road. Turnpike Road eventually turns to dirt and will pass under high tension lines. The Gile Mountain Tower Trail parking lot and trailhead will eventually be on the left.
