Snowless and dry trails. Black flies out but not too bad due to the wind.

We took this route: Up Brook Trail, to Pond Link Trail, to Little Jackson Trail, then down west slope to pond, then to West Peak via unnamed (?) trail on north side of pond, back down Brook Trail.

Nearly full leaves at the bottom, trees barely budding near the pond and higher.

Some kids fishing at the pond, some kids playing in a patch of snow. Otherwise quiet this time of year - very nice!
