Well maintained. Clear trail markers. Not a lot of ice (couple spots we slipped). Beautifully sunny day.

great fun, I recommend microspikes and poles with the packed snow and icy conditions.

Very muddy and be prepared for stream crossings without bridges. Chestnut Ridge never gets boring because there is so much to explore. I went off trail for a bit so my recording isnt very accurate for the last quarter or so

Pretty good condition. A Saturday in November with crisp and sunny weather so quite a few people around.

Tough when muddy. A little tricky to find trail at some spots but good long hike.

How do you make a correction to the map. One spot on the blue trail is wrong/confusing and takes you off the trail to the inner loop paved road making it hard to get back on the trail.

I often do just parts of the trail. Each section has it's own beauty and experience.
