Strange Brew

It’s nice and dry with some moist patches, from the bottom up to Sugar Daddy junction. After that, the last bit at the top is a sloppy mess. If you’re climbing, I’d recommend walking it so you don’t tear up the trail. If you’re descending (like we were) just go slow. Traction is extremely sporadic. But yeah, Sugar Daddy to Boundary Ridge junction was great.

It’s mostly dry… or maybe moist with some light slop in the sheltered parts for the first two thirds. After the little knoll on the climb, the snow appears and it gets a bit sloppier. It’s only about half a centimetre of mud on top, with firm trail underneath. You don’t really loose traction or cut up the trail. After the turnoff for Snakes and Ladders it’s pretty dry. The first descent on Strange Brew is pretty messy, up to the Sugar Daddy junction. After that it dries out.

Ice dam at the bridge is gone. There are a couple mud puddles at the crossing but otherwise trail is bone dry.
