General Description, Safety Concerns, or other notes:
The trail is usually very well groomed by the Andover and Cardigan Mtn Snowmobile clubs. Mostly flat with great visibility but this also means that the snowmobilers like to drive fast here.

There is a significant road crossing in Danbury at the parking area but visibility is very good. The Lebanon end of the trail has quite a few road crossings but none are main, high speed roads. However, visibility is not always great so use caution.

In addition, there are places where local folks walk their dogs daily in both fall and winter. Watch for them just north and south of the Grafton Store. Also pretty much anywhere along the Lebanon end of the trail. PLEASE use caution and always have your team under control.
