The southern most section of the Catamount Trail...because it begins on orivate land with no public access, you ski south to the state marker, turn around and backtrack northward. Quirky. 

It was a good start, I learned a lot.


I admit that navigation is my scaredy squirrel for this journey. The Catamount Trail Association does a great job with route summaries, written directions, maps ect. 

However, retaining written descriptions...."exit the woods into an open meadow and ski across a beaver dam (not visible in deep snow), ski northeast along the West side of the river and reenter a mostly yellow birch forest to the north west side, approximately 300 yards past a stand of small fir trees."

Oh, okay...sure.

I am going to call some trail chiefs.
