Last winter, when it was too icy on the Jackrabbit trail, I went to the Gulf Brook road and it was a rather nice ski, although still a little "shallow". The snowmobile tracks didn't help, but I guess...

The survey of my Elizabethtown property was done by a John Deming (in the 1970s); do you think it's the same John Deming who owns the two properties mentioned above

Dundee and WBB, are the three towers you mention ALL on private land? If so, is permission to hike possible and/or required?

There is a sign at least one end of the bypass trail, but one friend of mine got turned around there (he didn't notice the sign), and when he got to the other end of the bypass, went back!

The Jay Mountain trail is dug and marked up to the ridge but from there, you're on your own. However, the ridge is so open that you can see your destination almost the whole time!

One thing I would like to add to my description of the rainy pre-memorial day hikes - there were no other people on any of these trails. Of course, that was a few years ago and such lack of hoards...
