  • Trail Condition Report Guidelines

    Here are some quick guidelines for posting trail conditions.
    • Be as brief as possible
    • Describe the observed trail conditions
    • Describe water crossings
    • Describe traction devices used (snowshoes, crampons, microspikes, etc)
    • If the trail was unbroken (winter conditions) include the number of people in your party
    • Do not include the weather conditions
    • Longer reports should be posted in the Trip Report section
    • Photos and topics not related to trail conditions should be posted in the Trip Report section

    Sample thread titles:
    • Mount Marcy via the Van Hoevenberg trail. Dec. 25
    • Big Slide via the Brothers, Jan. 1

    A sample report:
    Mount Marcy via the Van Hoevenberg trail. Dec. 25

    From Loj to Marcy dam: 4 inches of snow over ice. Bare booting was fine.
    Marcy Dam to Phelps junction: increasing snow depth, put on snowshoes at Phelps junction.
    Drifts thigh deep on Marcy were blowing in on our way back down.
    Trail is well-packed to tree-line.
    Crampons were not required.
