Snowshoeing - Featherstonehaugh State Forest

With another moonlight snowshoe trip coming up sometime this week or next, I wanted to see what was on the ground at Featherstonehaugh. I didn't expect it to be very skiable, so opted for snowshoes instead. Parked on Tidball Road, and walked the entire ski trail loop, much of which had recent ski tracks. There was maybe an inch of recent snow on top of an icy crust. Wet areas were frozen, and breaking through into the air pockets below was common, even on snowshoes. When not breaking through, conditions made for easy walking on top of the snow, and I was back at the car in about an hour. Snow, sleet, ice, and rain expected through tomorrow, so conditions will undoubtedly change.
