    A to Z Trail Re-Route

    While hiking Tom, Field, and Willey today, I came across a pretty large tarp-covered campsite, marked by surveyor's tape, just below the junction of Avalon and A to Z. On the way down, I discovered a crew doing a reroute of the A to Z trail so that it doesn't drop down into the stream and then re-climb (this is just above the junction.) They expected to finish by end of summer, with a goal of keeping the trail more or less level, although I could not see any way it doesn't drop at least a little bit when crossing that stream.

    Is that the spot that gets packed down and icy in Winter and becomes a bit of a luge track on the upper part of the ravine?

    Probably. If you’re going to Tom, you go right on A to Z where Avalon goes left. Very shortly you drop down 40 or 50 feet and then back up.
