Max Seaton and I took the Forest City Trail to the Long Trail and looped back down the Burrows Trail. What I was not expecting was the blizzard like conditions on the hike.

We started out with a moderate amount of snow towards the bottom, but as we reached the top, we had probably three to four inches. On the way up, we ran into only one person until we started going down the other side of the Summit.

At the staging area, we stopped for a quick interview with some high school students doing an English project on connecting with nature. We then made quick work of getting down the hill as it was rather chilly. Pace was pretty consistent throughout, starting just after 9AM and getting back down at about 1:30PM.
