Hunt Trail Conditions May 15, 2015

Rangers have checked conditions on the Hunt Trail (A.T.) and The Owl. At about 3,300' elevation on the Hunt Trail, we have 3-5' snow in places in the trail, with more challenging ice conditions above. Over on the Owl we found 20"+ in the trail at about 3,000' elevation, continuous posthole conditions and numerous blowdowns needing to be cleared. All Katahdin trails remain closed at this time. Thank you for your patience.
