Route: Mt. Major Trail, (Mt. Major), Mt. Major Trail

Initial portion of the trail was mostly snow free with some minor mud. Approaching the Mt. Major/Brook Trail junction, snowpack commences. Enough bareboot traffic has passed through that snowshoes will not be needed for Mt. Major Trail unless we get more snow. The ledges are a bit icy, though they could be navigated with care without traction in warm temperatures. Traction of some sort would be absolutely necessary in the early morning hours.
