Winter and summer on the Long Trail to Styles Peak

Route: Long Trail, Griffith Lake Trail, bushwhack, FR 58, FR 21

Headed to southwest Vermont to hopefully avoid the new snow, but we hit it at probably 2,500 feet. Conditions were sloppy with snow depths generally around 1-3 inches, but perhaps deeper in a few shaded areas. Lots of mud and running water in thawed areas. Decent directional views from Styles Peak, but we never found the alleged view spur on or near Peru Peak.

Muddy around the Griffith Lake area as well.

Open wood bushwhack up to Mt. Tabor from Griffith Lake Trail/snowmobile corridor. A few peekaboo views near the recognized highpoint.

FR58 wasn't unpleasant for walking back to finish the loop - nice viewpoint part way down, looking at Equinox and points south.
