I went for an unplanned dayhike on the Catamount Trail near a friend’s place in Bolton, which turned out to be a less-than-perfect idea. As hikers in Vermont should know (and I do), trails on state land are closed for mud season, and it is recommended that you not hike on other trails due to excessive erosion. We managed to do very little damage to the trail for the most part, but post-holing through the remnants of high-elevation snow made the going less pleasant than if we had waited a few more weeks.
Our plan was to go to Olga’s Falls, but this raging stream crossing was as far as we made it. Water was cascading down the mountainside as if it had been raining for days. This will probably be a trickle in comparison later in the season. For now, best to stick to roads and low elevations.
